Seminar Extended Use of Churches

 

TIME: 7 October 2013, 9.00-17.30 PLACE: Niguliste Museum, Tallinn, Estonia
LANGUAGE: English

For centuries churches have been the central pillars of the communities around them – congregations’ manifestations of pride and wealth. In these days the status of a church building has undergone considerable change. Secularisation and urbanisation processes have shrunk congregations, especially in the countryside. Financial challenges and under-use are the key factors which put historical churches under threat of redundancy. The focus of the seminar is extended use of churches. The aim is to introduce the present situation and trends in Europe and boost the discussion on that matter.  Our target groups are congregations and the clergy as well as the professionals working in the field of heritage protection.
