What is #JUMPFORHERITAGE?
In these challenging times of Covid-19, we are all hit hard. Lifestyles and daily programs have changed immensely. Heritage all around us is closed in many countries. Many sports activities have also been limited. However, outdoor sports and a good laugh have been shown to improve health by reducing stress and mental fatigue. Our digital world offers opportunities for innovative solutions to these problems.
This is why we at FRH are initiating our campaign #JUMPFORHERITAGE which will unite sports and heritage!
Let’s link sports and heritage, health, fun and awareness to bring joyful moments while showcasing Europe’s rich religious heritage.
Few historic buildings are as easy to find as religious buildings. They are often the oldest and most prominent building in a village or town. They mark a location where history happened. They are storytellers and are all around us.
Add your own story in front of a religious heritage site, create a unique joyful moment, and capture it in a photo. #JUMPFORHERITAGE is open to everyone!
#JUMPFORHERITAGE is an extension of FRH’s Torch initiative, a project collecting personal stories in the framework of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018. FRH is one of the 28 EU Cultural Networks Co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
#JUMPFORHERITAGE is a movement of optimism and beauty in an exceptional chain of religious heritage across Europe.
Join FRH and #JUMPFORHERITAGE!
