Europeana - Migrations (Zagreb, 12 September 2018)
On the occasion of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, Europeana - the European Digital Platform for Cultural Heritage, launched a new Migration project that was launched March 2018.
The 'Migrations' project aims to bring together collections dedicated to the topic of migrations from and within Europe. During 2018, the European Year of Cultural Heritage, the intention is to enrich the collection by adding content from cultural heritage institutions across Europe. Also, in cooperation with galleries, museums and archives throughout the year, Europeana will organize a 'Collection Day' throughout Europe as a separate event, where all citizens will be able to share personal items, photos, diaries, letters and stories on 'Migrations'.
Share your personal migration story!
We all have objects - like pictures, letters, postcards or recipes - to share and stories to tell about where we've come from and what's shaped our lives. For many of us, that involves our personal, family or community's stories of migration and immigration.
Europeana, Ministy of culture, National and University Library in Zagreb, Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies and Croatian Radiotelevision are inviting communities from Zagreb and beyond to share their personal migration stories - and objects such as pictures, diaries, videos and letters - to our migration collection. Young and old are invited to bring along one or more objects that are part of their and their family’s migration story and as many details about them as possible.
Sharing your migration history can help us to tell a really big story - the story of Europe and the people who live here. Your story is part of Europe’s rich and shared history of migration, and now it can be recorded for the future.
