"industrial heritage hub"

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 to become 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.
