History of the European Heritage Tribune

The European Heritage Tribune is a leading digital news platform for the European heritage community, established in 2018 and officially launched in 2019.

The platform was initiated under the aegis of the Heritage Lab Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and preserving Europe’s cultural heritage. The foundation received significant funding from prominent organizations including the Dutch Mondriaan Fund, the DCICC foundation, and the Dutch provinces of Utrecht, Drenthe, and Groningen. The Heritage Lab Foundation was also supported by the Dutch Heritage Association NGO Heemschut.

The official launch of the European Heritage Tribune took place in October 2019 during the European Cultural Heritage Summit. The event was held at the Hotel de Ville in Paris, and the European Heritage Tribune was officially presented to key players in the European heritage community, including Hermann Parzinger, Executive President of Europa Nostra, and Catherine Magnant, former coordinator of the EYCH 2018 at the European Commission.

The European Heritage Tribune is dedicated to fostering a network for cultural heritage by sharing timely and relevant news and disseminating valuable knowledge within the sector. As an independent and forward-thinking source, the platform strives to inform and educate professionals and enthusiasts alike, promoting the preservation and celebration of Europe’s rich heritage. With its weekly digital newsletter, daily updates through its social media channels, and comprehensive website, the European Heritage Tribune is an essential resource for anyone interested in Europe’s cultural heritage.
