Tuesday 23 April 2019
The fifth edition of the conference on responsible management of religious heritage will take place on 23 April 2019 in the Sint-Jozef Colomakerk in Mechelen. In the morning we bring the theory with specific attention to management forms, legal aspects and the new legislation. In the afternoon, experience experts will show projects from all over Flanders.
On 5 and 6 June, the 14th "JEO" will be held throughout Belgium. In 2019, more than 500 places of worship will offer a weekend of rich and varied activities to an unusual public. In 2021, with the theme "Church, red thread", let's try to beat this record! Online registration is now open and closes on 28 February.
In spite of the health crisis and its share of restrictions, the four national entities of the Open Churches network have found different ways to continue to promote the religious heritage and to open it up to as many people as possible.
