Cultural events and festivals can be important occasions to celebrate elements of our shared heritage, contributing to a sense of identity and belonging. They are also significant drivers of tourism, a top economic sector in Umbria and in many other European regions.

The tourism and events sectors were particularly hard-hit by the pandemic and the measures instituted to combat COVID. The SHARE project is working this year to study how cultural heritage, including events, can operate in COVID-safe ways and improve their resilience for the future.

We will present case studies gathered using guidance from experts at the University of Greenwich, to examine cultural events that have been held online and in person in 2020 and 2021. The goal is to discover what has worked and what hasn’t, to benefit from lessons learned.

Note:  if you plan to take part in person, please register by sending an email to [email protected] In-person attendees must adhere to COVID protocols and show a super green pass.

The working language of the event is English.

This event is recognised as an EU Industry Weeks local event.
