Ghent 3-5 ottobre 2019: Heritage cemeteries in the 21st century: use, re-use and shared use
Mneme: The individual and collective memory as part of the Cemetery Heritage



The use and re-use policies of the cemetery spaces in relationship to the community


Today, after a certain time, we are writing a bilingual ‘travel notes’ to be published so as to recount the Melancholy Heritage Project’s experience (and challenges), enriching it with the material, experiences and research carried out so far. It was an intense and complex journey with numerous critical points; yet it is a journey that continues…

We would like to learn about other experiences, points of view and good practices of using cemetery spaces throughout Europe that enable us to experience other scenarios and change processes regarding the use of these complex spaces. We would also like to hear stories and news of cemetery spaces that tell something more regarding popular culture, rituals and ‘experiences’ of the European community.

If you would like to send us some ideas, write to us! (in English if possible)

This is the message we brought into fairytale city of Ghent.
