On Friday afternoon, November 3 at 12:30, the network meeting ‘The past belongs to everyone’ will take place at Radboud University in Nijmegen (in Dutch). At this event, Young Historian of the Year Stef Coenen, together with experts and the Young Historians Foundation will be in dialogue with the field of cultural heritage about the accessibility of young historians with a physical disability in the public history sector.
The public history sector and young historians with a physical disability
Our working group of historians with a physical disability, Young Historian of the Year Stef Coenen and the Young Historians Foundation have put together a diverse program, which will address themes such as: how do you create an accessible museum exhibition? How do you ensure that museum collections and heritage institutions are representative? How can an application procedure be made accessible?
Awareness and new connections
The unique thing about this day is that experienced experts, archive and museum professionals, academics and students will come together. They are all invited to share their vision. The day is therefore not only about increasing awareness about the topic and gaining more insight into best practices, but also about creating new connections.
Will you join us?
Would you also like to learn more about this theme, or share your own experiences? Are you a heritage professional with a disability and do you want to learn more about accessibility in the sector? Or are you a student interested in accessibility? Everyone is welcome on November 3 from 12.30 pm. You can register in advance via https://forms.gle/KTCvRTA8bx6usqTg9. The full program will soon be shared via the Instagram page @verledenvaniedereen and on our LinkedIn ‘The past belongs to everyone!’. Everyone is welcome and we hope to see you on November 3.
