ECHO – European Cultural Heritage On Stage

Traditions is everything which is passed on from the past to the present. This could come in the form of a physical object, a cultural monument or a combination of both. Traditions are related to the groups of people which practice them, and they represent an inseparable part of the latter’s dynamic identity. It is thought that traditions are deep rooted practices which come from a distant, mythologize past. They are in danger of being lost and forgotten.

The goal of our work is to provide condition for artists from Europe to create their own artwork and craftwork through artistic exploration and creativity in the areas of fine arts, painting, sculpture, graphic design, fashion design, comics, music, photography and craftsmanship. They will do so by researching the local heritage, and by getting inspiration from local traditions or intangible cultural heritage.
