The workshop “Alive History” focuses on the exchange of knowledge between cultural institutions and generations through developing and implementing innovative and traditional practices for life-long learning. The practices are providing skills for gathering, preserving and disseminating regional history throughout modern communication technologies and their tools.

The workshop's prorgamme includes the research work of authors – local historians and investigators, library and museum specialists, social and public figures, journalists and teachers. The study modules for knowledge transfer present the local cultural and historical artefacts by converting them into objects of survey of the new technologies and realizing them into digital models.

Main Activities

  • Creating abilities for working with modern technologies among museum and library specialist and historians in order to use them for popularization of the regional history
  • Transfer of interdisciplinary knowledge
  • Analysis and presentation of the workshop's results

Expected Results

The workshop deals with the multi functional process of the cultural dialogue – knowledge transfer between different specialists collaborating with the regional history and culture; sharing own and  others experiences; provoking professional curiosity and interest in “others” experiences; exchanging skills for new representative practices. The accent is on the knowledge transfer but also on the process of learning.

Developing variations for multiplication and dissemination of the achieved knowledge in the workshop by preparing presentations and teaching materials. Composing working applications for each task.
