About the project
OpenHeritage identifies and analyses good practices of adaptive heritage re-use, and tests them in selected Cooperative Heritage Labs over Europe. It works with communities and local businesses, tries out new forms of engagement and uses crowdfunding and crowd sourcing mechanisms to create active heritage communities. It develops inclusive governance and management models applicable for non-touristic, neglected cultural heritage sites as well. It also creates a supporting toolbox to ease their use.
For interested parties it offers:
An online Database of current practices and policies – listing national regulations, connecting them with diverse local initiatives, documenting the work in the local initiatives with pictures, videos and a short analysis
Heritage Points – 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
