Erfgoed Jong organises in cooperation with Jong OCW, Jong RCE and the European Heritage Tribune an interactive meeting called “A European Career in Cultural Heritage” on Wednesday afternoon 19 April. The meeting will focus on opportunities and obstacles in the European job market for young and/or starting heritage professionals. The meeting has an international focus and will take place at the Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed, Smallepad 5 in Amersfoort. The event starts at 16:15.
The meeting is organised in connection with the visit of ten participants of the European Heritage Youth Ambassadors programme and is an opportunity to exchange knowledge and experiences with these young European heritage professionals about the possibilities of an (international) career in cultural heritage.
The meeting will start with a short welcome on behalf of the organising parties. The participants can then share their ideas and experiences at three different tables, each dedicated to its own theme. In between, the groups can switch to ensure that you, as a participant, can take part in two different discussions. After this exchange, there will be room for discussion and to get to know each other over drinks. The meeting ends at 18:30.
The themes for the discussion groups:
● Movable heritage and the future
● Heritage education and (digital) storytelling
● Heritage in conflict
Erfgoed Jong cordially invites all young heritage professionals to participate in this future oriented meeting, a great opportunity to get to know the European heritage field and the young people working in it. Meeting will be held in English, entrance is free. You can register via the website www.careerinheritage.nl
