#AllezCulture is the hashtag that marks Europeana’s new campaign inviting everybody to find and share their cultural heroines and heroes through Europeana. The campaign was launched on 29 March, and offers the chance to look at Europeana’s digital collection from a new perspective. The collections from cultural institutions brought together in Europeana offer the unique opportunity to compare many documents from across Europe in one place. Here, images, artifacts and documents dealing with one individual are brought together regardless of their physical geographical location. #AllezCulture draws on this functionality.
The goal is to give Europeana users the possibility to find information, images and other material about their cultural hero or heroine and work with the content made available by Europeana. This content can be used to make a presentation: an animation, a gif, or simply a twitter card. The latter is automatically created when using the Share on Twitter button.

The filters on Europeana make it very easy to find content, which can then be re-used or downloaded. Information about sharing and publishing licenses is available next to the images. Please visit this Europeana blog post for more information, and find your personal hero(ine)!
