Project in a nutshell

The project partnership establishes the idea of Living Industrial Culture in Central Europe and reveals, strengthens and utilizes the unique cultural spirit of industrial regions.  They jointly set out to discover their industry-based culture for positioning themselves as appealing places for work, life and recreation. Past, present and future cultural assets related to industry are used as one powerful force. Industrial Culture becomes a dynamic concept mirroring earlier and ongoing transformations of industrial economy and actively shaping the cultural sphere of the affected communities.
