“You are really, really excellent teachers… Thank you for your passion
in sharing your knowledge.” David Revell and David Masters from Imagemakers have recently completed the second of two training courses for the Museum Cultour Adriatic project.
The two courses addressed the complete process of interpretive planning, design, delivery and evaluation. Now all the museums involved in this project can further develope new exhibits and galleries.
“Museumcultour is a project funded under the IPA Adriatic Cross-Border Cooperation Programme. Its aim is the strengthening of cultural tourism through marked-oriented programs and initiatives. This is why the involved museums are enriched by modern, interactive and innovative exhibitions and collections.
Thanks to the integration of the Adriatic heritage, a new touristic proposal will be created. The product will be promoted through joint strategies of marketing and communication, leading to the strengthening of an Adriatic museum network.
The first project objective is to improve the museum attractiveness through new permanent or temporary exhibitions and through the renew of the present collections. Many joint activities oriented to the museums operators are foreseen: marketing studies on the present and potential visitors; trainings for museum staff; joint marketing and communication strategies; new touristic proposal to enjoy the Adriatic cultural heritages.”
More about this project >>
The Museum Cultour Adriatic project is somewhat similar to the Portico project, which overall aim is to make the experience and conservation of the cities’ cultural and archaeological heritage compatible with economic development (this website and its network are an outgrowth of Portico).
Both projects have several partners from different European countries cooperating and sharing their expertise and experience. It’s a good thing that more and more cultural organizations cooperate in Europe and increasingly exchange their knowledge and expertise. Yet it is hard to know all of these projects and to find ways to benefit from the outcomes.
If anyone has a suggestion how the Inheritage network can contribute to sharing expertise and experience in Europe, please let us know. We would really like to cooperate.
