Within the 2nd Local Info Day of the Forget Heritage project partner Nuernberg, the whole city will be on the legs for explorations – It´s the magical weekend of the yearly happening “Stadt(ver)führungen”, when 350 local guides will offer 800 tours on 503 themes.
Forget Heritage was presented at the European Architecture Students Assembly held in Rijeka between July and August; the so-called EASA is a platform for cultural and educational exchange, connecting Architecture students and professionals from all European countries, and in recent years from all over the world.
The Forget Heritage project is a three year long INTERREG Central Europe program, which started at 01.06.2016. The main objective of Forget Heritage is promoting cooperation between CE cities in order to identify innovative, replicable and sustainable Public Private Cooperation management models of the historical sites by valorising them through setting up Cultural and Creative Industries.
Most cities are characterized by the presence of unused historical buildings, such as former factories, hospitals, schools, barracks, that have marked the history of the local community.
Now, in a state of neglect, their historical memory is being forgotten and they have a negative impact on the surrounding areas by turning into "urban voids”.
The objective of Forget Heritage is to promote cooperation among participating cities in order to identify innovative replicablend sustainable private public cooperation management models of the abandoned historical sites - recognised as cultural heritage. The partnership aims to provide recommendations for other cities on how to enhance the hidden potential of the cultural heritage to influence the quality of life of the citizens and cultural creative industry operators who will have new working opportunities and boost their managerial skills.
Further results envisioned are: a management manual, transnational training model and - in view of pilot actions an ex-ante assessment and ex-post evaluation. The project will also develop tools to indicate buildings in underutilised areas ideal for cultural and creative use. Transnational cooperation allows to find novel solutions. Collective results to influence national policies, develop human resources and strengthen local managerial systems are the added value of this collaboration.
