After two years of COVID, it seems necessary to us to have a discussion between associations and volunteers about the experiences and approaches of industrial and technical heritage in Europe, to exchange ideas. However, for various reasons, a physical meeting does not yet seem feasible. That is why EFAITH, the European Federation of Associations of Industrial and Technical Heritage, is organising a first free virtual meeting via Zoom on Saturday 14 May. Individuals and organisations can then present a project or their experiences from past COVID years. Presentations may last 20 minutes and are followed by online questions and discussion. Presentations can use PowerPoint and may be made in English or French. More information is available on our website, see 👇http://industrialheritage.eu/activities/next-industrial-heritage-weekend ...

On Wednesday 23 February, our Flemish Association for Industrial Archaeology (VVIA) organised a webinar on industrial tourism, as part of a commitment we made through EFAITH to HECTOR. The webinar was given by Adriaan Linters and had two objectives - Make industrial tourism known in Flanders - to generate interest in following the Erasmus+ course HECTOR Over 500 invitations were sent to the tourist board of Flanders (Toerisme Vlaanderen), the provincial tourist boards, all municipal tourist boards, the tourist guide associations and the press, as well as to regional and numerous local heritage organisations. We informed potential interested people also via our electronic newsletter (1141 recipients) and last but not least the members of VVIA. The webinar was divided into three parts 1) the emergence of tourist interest in industrial heritage 2) Examples of tourist interpretation and projects in different European countries 3) The need for training of tourism operators - referring participants to HECTORThe seminar lasted almost two hours. After it had ended, a number of participants continued to discuss it at length, so that this online session did not end until just before midnight. There were more than 50 participants, which can be called a success, however - because the webinar was held outside office hours only a few officials participated - we are therefore considering repeating it during office hours - the representatives of the official tourism services and institutions were in the minority, on the one hand because they are civil servants and they only work during office hours, and on the other because industrial heritage is not included in the policy letter 'tourism' of the Flemish Government. Therefore, industrial tourism is not one of the priorities and tasks of the tourist institutions - some people who were not used to working with zoom dropped out during the webinar and some people after about one to one and a half hours. Some people contacted us afterwards by mail and told us about the problems they had with zoom, being impossible to join again - or that they had to quit for family reasons because of the late hour. Some screen prints and a list of participants are sent separately via WeTransfer. if you wish we can provide you with a full recording of the webinar VVIA wants to put a lot of effort into the promotion of industrial tourism this year, as that was also agreed with the participants. We are currently working on the development of a chapter on our website about industrial tourisme industrieelerfgoed.be/industrieel-toerisme-algemeen .In addition, our volunteers will translate the HECTOR press releases and information into Dutch and distribute them via our channels.Please send your information to info@industrieelerfgoed.be or to me patrick@industrieelerfgoed.be Please send your information to info@industrieelerfgoed.be or to me patrick@industrieelerfgoed.be . ...

HECTOR online course and summer school will give you insights into what heritage means in its different forms, tangible and intangible, it will make you reflect on the possibility to create a complete touristic offer that takes into consideration all different aspects and attractions that connect to the industrial site and culture.UCAVO wants to wish you all happy Christmas telling you the story of a fascinating tradition happening in Abbadia San Salvatore (an ex-mining town) every year. The tradition of the "Fiaccole", which during the industrial times, as well as in previous and following times, was able to warm the hearts of all miners and families, increase the sense of community and belonging."On Christmas Eve, the village of Abbadia S. Salvatore is filled with the sound of "Pastorelle" (traditional Christmas songs) and the warmth of the fire takes inhabitants and tourists on a fantastic journey back in time.This is a thousand-year-old tradition that has its roots before the year 1000, when the inhabitants of the villages near the abbey and those along the Via Francigena came to Abbadia for midnight mass. Fires were lit to light the way and keep the population warm.The work of building these impressive mountains of wood, some 7 metres high, nowadays begins on 8 December and involves the entire population, especially young people.The culture is also transmitted through the involvement of schools and the Mining Museum, which has been organising torch-building workshops for years. As in all historical traditions that are deeply felt by the population, the spirit of competition among the various groups of torch-bearers is very strong, which leads to a considerable effort to ensure that they are not simply piles of wood, but meeting places for the duration of the Christmas period, adorned with different decorations for each district (also called "Terzieri").That's why, even today, huge piles of wood rise up in front of the old abbey and in many other places in the old town waiting for midnight, the whole town pours into the streets to celebrate Christmas.The festival begins at around 6 p.m. with the lighting of the torch under the porticoes of the Town Hall, and from here the torch-bearers set off to light all the other stacks in the town.Many choirs are organised, singing and playing through the streets of the Terzieri and stopping in front of each torch.The celebrations end with the opening of the cellars after midnight mass, with the classic barbecued sausages and mulled wine." ...
