ReForma Viva Erasmus+ Project

Mednarodni projekt Erasmus+ Re/Forma Viva

One of the key factors in cultural heritage protection is education that would show importance of using various tools for the promotion of shared values. As it was written in the DECISION (EU) 2017/864 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 17 May 2017 on a European Year of Cultural Heritage (2018), ¨ One way to achieve such understanding would be through educational and greater public-awareness programmes¨. Cultural heritage and issues of preservation of it for future are an important issue in our shared European community. But we also need to consider positive effect that work in the field of cultural heritage has on other aspects of society (labour market, shared values, interculturalism, entrepreneurship possibilities, tourism etc.) and that can be promoted through education. The project will address the implementation of digitalisation using 3D technology in the field of cultural heritage preservation (on the case of outdoor wood structures) education. Cultural heritage and issues of preservation of it for the future is an important issue in our shared European community. The project will try to cross the bridge between employers and HEI with the issues of cultural heritage protection and restoration. In the partnership the need for a more structured guidelines regarding preservation and restoration emerged in both sectors.

Re/Forma Viva will incorporate innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to these issues with implementation of intellectual outputs (guidelines for students, 3D model web platform, framework for collaboration of HEI and employers) gives potential to wider application of issues addressed by the project. Project will use Forma Viva Outdoor Sculpture Park in Kostanjevica na Krki as case study in addressing this issues. The sculptures were created on sculptural symposiums Forma Viva with worldwide participation of artists from 1961. Sculptures moulding by artists are made from oak wood, typical for this part of Slovenia.

During the project implementation several activities will take place:
Intellectual Outputs: Guidelines on preservation of cultural heritage in wood for students (O1), Web platform for cultural heritage of 3D models (O2), Database of documentation approach to preservation of cultural heritage (D3).
Learning/Teaching/Training Activities: Joint staff training (C1), Seminar course for students on preservation techniques for cultural heritage in wood (C2), Summer School on preservation techniques for cultural heritage in wood (C3). As well as six Multiplier events aimed at different target groups with presentations at Universities and Round Tables where relevant stakeholders will be invited.
