2017 Leuven

Future for Religious Heritage (FRH) was honoured to host its 6th Annual General Assembly at the Park Abbey in Leuven, a place where European heritage, art and culture meet.

The Assembly, which took place on 26th October 2017, saw delegates arriving from all parts of Europe to take part in what proved to be an interesting programme dedicated to the future of religious heritage.

FRH presented its achievements during the last year and outlined an ambitious future vision for the network in the run-up of the European Year of Cultural Heritage, including details about the launch of its new state-of-the-art website.

The meeting provided participants with the opportunities to network, share knowledge and benefit from mutual experiences at the world of Religious Heritage.

All participants had the chance to attend a Q&A session focused on the development of rural and religious tourism around churches. This opened a window of opportunities for members to share their current experiences in the field of religious heritage and tourism.

Participants enjoyed to be one of the first visitors to discover the new museum Parcum, which opened on 25th October 2017. They were introduced to the activities of The Alamire Foundation, International Centre for the Study of Music in the Low Countries, which is based in the Abdij van Park.
