About the project
OpenHeritage: Organizing, Promoting and ENabling HEritage Reuse
through Inclusion, Technology, Access, Governance and Empowerment
OpenHeritage identifies and tests the best practices of adaptive heritage re-use in Europe. Drawing on the observations and results, the project will develop inclusive governance and management models for marginalized, non-touristic heritage sites and tests them in selected Cooperative Heritage Labs over Europe. It works with communities, local businesses, local and municipal administration, tries out new forms of engagement and uses crowdfunding and crowd sourcing mechanisms to create active heritage communities.
For interested parties it offers:
Practices – an online database of current practices and policies listing national regulations, connecting them with diverse local initiatives, documenting the work in the sites with pictures, videos and a short analysis
Heritage Labs– online platforms to create/strengthen communities around the Cooperative Heritage Labs, inviting interested parties to observe and participate
National networking events and dialogues – to facilitate the exchange of views between practitioners, policy makers and public administration officials
International conferences – to exchange views
Training programs – for local administrations and practitioners
