Meurop & Dijledonk in the spotlight on “Heritage Day” 2021

20 in 2021. That is how many years the cultural heritage festival already exists!  At this festive edition on 24 & 25 April 2021, old ánd new stories have a special place in our reconversion project Dijledonk.

If “Open Monuments Day” is the annual holiday to open up immovable heritage in the autumn, then “Heritage Day” at the end of April is the public event in Flanders and Brussels for movable and immovable heritage.

The iconic furniture company Meurop that was active there until 1980 wrote years of collective history in Rijmenam. In the golden sixties, the whole country looked forward to finding the colourful and lively Meurop brochures with its attractive and affordable design furniture in the mailbox. The Meurop-furniture of that time and the designs of Pierre Guariche and others produced in Rijmenam are once more in great demand these days, especially among vintage lovers.

The project developers PSR-Jan De Nul Group and COGIVA are delighted to be able to host an inspiring and Coronaproof cultural heritage programme with the theme 'Night' in the Dijledonk area development in cooperation with the cultural policy & tourism department of the municipality of Bonheiden and the creative collective Imaginair.
