Press Release: Four Online Events Set to Discuss and Debate “Europe’s Living Religious Heritage” In New and Accessible Format for FRH’s Biennial Conference


Monday, 19 April 2021

Brussels, BE – Four online events in 2021 will bring together experts, thought leaders and audiences from all over Europe to discuss and debate the future of Europe’s religious heritage.

The events will form part of ‘Europe’s Living Religious Heritage’, organised by Future for Religious Heritage (FRH), which works to safeguard Europe’s religious heritage for the future.

The online events replace FRH’s in-person Biennial Conference which was to have taken place in Barcelona but which has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 safety concerns. FRH organisers say that the newly live-streamed online events will make it possible for anyone to join from all over Europe and beyond without worrying about travelling or their safety. The events will be free of charge and open to all.

The four online events will take place in different locations across Europe. Each event will consist of a panel of expert guests discussing a key issue facing Europe’s religious heritage, live-streamed, and will include audience interaction.

The first ‘Europe’s Living Religious Heritage’ event will be live-streamed from Barcelona on 28 May. The theme of the event will be “Continuity in Function or Use” and will include a panel discussion hosted by FRH Council Member Justin Kroesen that will be followed by an interactive Q&A session with the audience. The event will also include video messages from high-level speakers, and the announcement of the winners of the #JUMPFORHERITAGE campaign. The other three events will be “Continuity in Community Connection /Community and Dialogue”, “Continuity in Evolving Cultural Expressions”, and “Continuity in Care and Safeguarding”. Each event will last approximately two hours. These events will take place in the autumn in Italy, Germany, and Belgium.
