On the European level, the European Council of History
Museums has launched a multi-annual programme called EUROCLIO so as
to raise awareness on questions of European identity and heritage.
The European Commission has offered support for the project under "Culture
2000". An inventory of history museums in Europe (HISTEUROPA database)
has thus been started. A scientific review is also published presenting
comparative history studies (COMPARARE). Finally, this program gathers
all energies towards activities for a broad general public, such as
the "festival exhibition" Your history is
our history and Everyone is a stranger somewhere.
Your history is our history,
a new museum project, highlights the issue of interaction between the
living memories of different European cities and present subjects ranging
from youth to cooking and music. This work is available on loan and
has toured from Finland and Luxembourg to Liverpool and Bonn.

Everyone is a stranger somewhere
is a touring exhibition focusing on the notion of otherness in Europe.
Europe differs from other continents by its mixed nationalities, languages
and cultures. Yet, the feeling of otherness or differences is a true
European experience in the right and in the wrong way. This exhibition
is a living invitation to tolerance and mutual understanding focusing
upon unity behing the European diversity.
More information on this event will soon be available
under the heading euromag
