People. Places. Potential.

The OpenHeritage project 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 heritage sites and a supportive toolbox to ensure their transferability.

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.
