Religious Heritage bringing people together as we face Covid-19

Religious Heritage bringing people together as we face Covid-19

Since Monday, March 16, 2020, our staff has been working remotely from home and following the instructions of the Belgian authorities. Please do reach us via our email at any time or via our individual emails.

All in-person meetings and activities planned for the month of March and April have been either postponed or switched to digital format. If you would like more detailed information, please do not hesitate to contact our team directly.

To FRH Members, and to all those working to safeguard religious heritage, we are convinced that together we will come out the current situation stronger and more cohesive as across Europe ideas and initiatives are being launched to stay together and overcome our current limitations.

From our side, we are initiating a comprehensive survey and conducting interviews within our network, both to determine the scope of the impact the crisis is having on the sector, and to highlight best practices in mitigating its negative effects.  Over the coming weeks we will be sharing these projects, stories and actions.

We invite all FRH members to participate – but also anyone interested in religious heritage – if you would like to be interviewed or share your ideas please let us know!

The world is going through a period of uncertainty at the moment. We understand that this will have a strong impact on the culture and heritage sectors, and we stand in solidarity with our members and the wider religious heritage sector. We will continue monitoring the situation and will keep you updated on any developments.

From the FRH Council and from the FRH Office, we hope that you and your families are safe and healthy.

Best wishes,

Michael Hoare, President

Jordi Mallarach, Executive officer
