At the third workshop, set to take place at the Austrian Open-Air Museum Stübing on 4th June, the Styrian partners will further develop community-based, local approaches for the preservation of intangible cultural heritage.
Preservation and Recovery of Intangible Cultural Heritage
Many of the central European cultural phenomena listed under the national or UNESCO heritage lack a sustainable approach to their preservation and management. Intangible cultural heritage like traditions are even more in danger to be lost if not carefully preserved. CULTURECOVERY focuses on eco-museums that have great potential for preserving the identity of places and people. The project aims at improving capacities of eco-museum managers and operators by promoting strategies and action plans for preservation and valorisation of immaterial cultural heritage. It will develop innovative solutions for a wider audience.
The project will encourage close cooperation between the public and private sector when developing new tools. The partnership will use and test bottom-up approach, tackle issues in an integrated and interdisciplinary way, and focus on the involvement of local communities.
Work Package 1
A joint transnational strategy is being developed to address the sustainable management and the innovative preservation, recovery, and promotion of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
Theoretical approaches are combined with in-depth consultations of local stakeholders and experts.
CULTURECOVERY has 9 partners from 6 central European countries.
