Do you want to be part of a culture sharing project for European school children?
Partner with us in HERITAGE HUBS, a project proposal for the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.
Project proposal description:
How can school children share their cultural practices so that other children can relate to and even practice them? And how would they understand, relate to and even practice the cultures of others?
The proposed project would create opportunities for school children in a number of European countries to themselves select parts of their cultures (e.g. celebrations, daily routines and habits, handicrafts, cooking and other skills) for sharing with each other. Ideally also the shared origins of cultures would be explored and highlighted.
The project would create the possibilities for digital as well as direct sharing by creating an open digital platform and organising reciprocal visits for the pupils.
The proposed project includes a pedagogical study that would empirically analyse the project pupils’ cultural exchange, especially the processes of sharing our own culture, of relating to the cultures of others as well as of experiencing our own culture through others.
As a final outcome, the project focuses on the development of and dissemination of powerful and ready at hand tools and methods for educational professionals and schools throughout Europe to enable integration of heritage, culture and intercultural dialogue and learning in everyday work.
Partners searched from eligible countries:
1. Cultural organizations that collaborate at a national level with schools (ideally secondary school level, ages approx. 11–15), to support the identification and coordination of schools participating in the project
2. A research organization for a study of the cultural exchange of the participants (schools and pupils) including the processes of sharing our own culture, of relating to the cultures of others as well as of experiencing our own culture through the (re)interpretation by others;
3. A European cultural network organization, to emphasize and strengthen European cooperation and communication within and beyond the proposed project.
