The aim of the European Year of Cultural Heritage is to encourage more people to discover and engage with Europe’s cultural heritage, and to reinforce a sense of belonging to a common European space.
All over the world a lot of cultural heritage is available, but especially in Europe there is a common cultural heritage worth remembering, discovering (again) and be aware of. In a world where the cultural diversity is increasing, the shared cultural heritage is a tool to promote intercultural understanding and create relations between identities, representations and performances of history, this by connecting higher educational institutions with cultural institutionsand companies to working an interdisciplinary, new and innovative way.
For those reasons and many more, we created CRAFT, an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership including six partners in total, representing five European Countries (Denmark, Spain, Portugal, Italy & Slovenia) with interdisciplinary roots. Each country is represented by a higher educational and/or cultural institution or company.
