The international ONLINE conference on ‘the Craft of the Miller’ is scheduled for 5 November 2020. With this online conference we aim to establish an international network of millers and mill societies. The Minister of Education, Culture and Science of the Netherlands will open the online conference

In 2017, the craft of the miller was the Kingdom of the Netherlands’ first inscription on the Representative List of the UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage. However, this craft is not unique to the Netherlands. Therefore, the inscription intended not only to safeguard this particular craft within the Netherlands, but also to foster international cooperation and assistance.

By organizing an online conference we aim to bring together all parties who have an interest in sharing knowledge, experiences and skills in order to help maintaining the craft of the miller: a first step towards a worldwide network.

This online meeting replaces the conference originally scheduled in Zaandam which had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
