Koenraad Van Balen biography
We are living in a mind blowing time putting new things at the centre as “solidarity” and “shared values”.
We can’t turn our back and use the excuse that distant places or events in a globalised world are calling us.
We embrace digital on-line connections and all its benefits while we realize that people and our environment are making us.
Have a look at “Places that Make Us” or “Why Places matter to people” at the website of the National Trust, about the impact of local cultural heritage. It is about the real world we sometimes overlook and the obvious importance of cultural heritage.
