Research of best practices at national level

KÖME – Association of Cultural Heritage Managers from Hungary – coordinator of the O1-TRAME Manual has evaluated the best practice research. Best practice examples are coming from Turkey, Serbia, Italy, Hungary and Poland.

Best practices provide many examples of interactive and experiential methods of protecting and interpreting cultural heritage that can be used to effectively involve the high school age group.

Of 23 best practices, 6 projects started from schools, most of them were initiated by museums / archaeological site/park/visitor center or archives, but there were also several cooperations where these were initiated individually, by a teacher or heritage expert.

Projects are most often implemented during teaching time, while during summer, the institutions usually run programs in the form of thematic camps.

Storytelling mostly appears in interviews as stories that present the historical, cultural, archaeological, etc. values of a given site.

There were various responses to the thematic focus, but for the most part they underlined the main theme of the educational program: the presentation of a given cultural heritage monument, its history, historical eras, everyday life, culture, all the while strengthening local or European identity or preserving universal human values such as acceptance and cultural diversity.

Many foreign re-enactors participated in the festival, so the festival had special days focused on a particular culture, for example British days, Lithuanian Days, Egyptian Days, Hungarian Days, North Native Americans Days, etc.
