The Hilali Network celebrates cross-cultural understanding with the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage!

2018 marks the European Year of Cultural Heritage #EYCH18 and The Hilali Network is participating in the celebrations as part of the United Kingdom showcase. The year includes events and initiatives across the UK and the rest of Europe to encourage people to explore and debate Europe’s rich and diverse cultural heritage (tangible, intangible, natural, digital and all types of cultural activities).


The UK national co-ordinator, performed by North of England Civic Trust is encouraging the UK community to get involved in the European Year of Cultural Heritage and is providing a space for citizens to collaborate, be informed about every EYCH event in the United Kingdom and promote cultural diversity.


At our up and coming workshop planned for 4th May 2018 at EU House (to be advertised soon), participants will be invited to work together to co-create cultural heritage educational activities through digital technology research approaches and STEM education.  Our event has been added as part of a programme recognised by the European Commission which promotes the role of Europe’s cultural heritage and its importance to cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue.


The activities of The Hilali Network both in the UK and Egypt aim to support cross-cultural understandings of cultural heritage in Europe and beyond as well as the celebration of cultural differences. The Hilali Network leads are from across the globe, including Italy, Portugal, Egypt and the UK & Northern Ireland – which makes for a diverse team of people with many of their own cultural heritage stories to tell each other!
