First meeting of the Young Professionals and Researchers Working Group

First meeting of the Young Professionals and Researchers Working Group

The Young Professionals and Researchers Working Group is now a reality. After months of talks and planning, the working group held its first meeting on Monday 22 January. The group is composed of 10 members, all of them young people under 35 and with diverse study and professional backgrounds, including law, theology, art history, anthropology, international relations, education and architecture. 

The members of the working group took this chance to introduce themselves and share their views on the group’s future activities and goals. Samidha Pusalkar, a young member of the Scientific Advisory Committee at FRH, will coordinate their work.

The working group aims to promote, support, and encourage youth involvement in the network’s activities. Its members will actively contribute to FRH’s activities and communications, ensuring that the issues they consider relevant are addressed, as well as promoting the achievements of young professionals of European religious heritage and connecting them with each other.

A key outcome of their work will be document providing a series of recommendations on how to bridge the generation gap between established professionals and young people wishing to pursue careers in religious heritage. This will be done through a series of conversations with museum curators, researchers, conservationists, directors of non-profit organisations, cultural heritage advisors and other professionals.
