Europeana Migration stories and objects collection day – Den Haag
2018-12-10 | By Europeana
We have an upcoming migration stories and objects collection day here in The Hague, held in collaboration with the National Library of The Netherlands on Tuesday 18th December, International Migrants Day. For these days we invite people to share stories about living in or moving to other countries. We ask people to share a photograph or letter or keepsake or something like that which symbolises their or their family’s story.
During this event, people will share their migration stories together with the objects that illustrate them. By participating in the event, people will contribute their family migration stories, which will then be shared online at Europeana Migration and made available for use and reuse by future generations. By sharing family stories, people will be helping to tell a really big story – the story of Europe and of the people who live here. We will be collecting stories in a number of languages.
