My House of European History: Together apart. Mobility in times of COVID-19


My House of European History hosts a very interesting event on March 12, 2022 about the impact of the pandemic on people’s ability to move freely.

Two years after the World Health Organisation declared COVID-19 a pandemic, fifteen people from Italy, Romania and Sweden, at different stages of their lives, take the floor and share with us how lockdown and restrictions changed their daily lives…

Artists, doctors, grocery store and supermarket workers, parents, senior citizens, students and teachers explore the sense of togetherness in times of crisis and reflect on what kept us apart and what bound us together. What do their experiences have in common? Where do they differ? What is their biggest takeaway from the pandemic?

Screenings of their 10-minute interviews are taking place for visitors to the 6th floor of the House of European History permanent exhibition in Brussels.

Saturday, 12 March 2022, from 10:00 to 18:00
