Industrial Heritage 2011

5th European contact weekend for industrial heritage volunteers and associations Tilburg (The Netherlands), 14-16.10.2011

E-FAITH, the European Federation of Associations of Industrial and Technical Heritage is the European platform promoting contacts and co- operation between non profit volunteer associations, the place where those can meet, exchange experiences, learn from each other and support each other=92s activities and campaigns.

After the succesfull meetings in Beringen, Kortrijk, Barcelona, and Calais each attended by representatives from a dozen countries, E- FAITH is now going to organize a fifth European contact weekend for volunteers and non profit organisations that are engaged in the research, the preservation, the interpretation and/or the presentation of the industrial and technical heritage.

It will again be an open and stimulating meeting where organisations and individuals can present and compare their ideas, projects and results - and find out where cooperation or common projects can grow, how they can support the aims of colleagues and how colleagues can support their objectives. This will be possible by lectures and oral presentations, leaflets, information stands, posters and small exhibits. Each participant is allowed to use the presentation techniques that to him/her seems to be the most appropriate. The main themes of the meeting will be:

- the Campaign for an European Industrial and Technical Heritage Year

- European bordercrossing cooperation between industrial and technical heritage associations

- twinning between associations

- exchanging experiences from the field

- discussing the possibilities of launching joint European projects During the meeting there will be visits to the famous Audax Textile Museum, the former railway workshops, the area of the Pius Harbour, etc.

This fifth contact weekend is organised on October 14-16th in Tilburg (The Netherlands)

Additional information on the Fifth European Industrial and Technical Heritage Weekend is available and will be regularly updated
