FerroForum was founded to preserve and promote both our cultural, industrial and traditional crafts heritage and the expertise developed to produce iron and steel. Although an integral part of the Esch 2022 – European Capital of Culture programme, FerroForum is a long-term project with the aim being that it becomes a key player in this field. Established as a non-profit association, FerroForum is housed in the Atelier Central (central workshop) of the former Arbed Esch-Schifflange Steelworks.
Repurposing this industrial architecture will create the perfect setting for all FerroForum’s activities, which range from documentation to developing artistic creativity and innovation. FerroForum will be a place to meet and explore which will stimulate discussion and interaction between all those interested in steelmaking – whether because of their personal background, their passion or simply out of curiosity.
