A new international project coordinated by the Transylvania Trust

11 october 2013

The Transylvania Trust is the leader of a new international project which will be implemented over a two year period in cooperation with partners from Belgium and France. It is supported by the European Union through the Culture Programme.

The project will celebrate the value of traditional building crafts skills in fostering international relations through exchanges of traditional practice and expertise, and will be mainly implemented at the International Built Heritage Conservation Training Centre at Banffy Castle, Bontida.

The Partners involved in this co-operation with the Transylvania Trust are the Institut du Patrimoine Wallon from Belgium, and the Union Rempart from France. The partnership will involve the exchange of craftsmen between the three countries and will offer an opportunity to promote the crafts skills from Transylvania to a wide European audience. The programme will also involve school children from each of the three countries in activities designed to help them understand the importance of the historic. During the two year period (2013-2015) several activities will be implemented, involving both, artists and members of the general public to celebrate the importance of our European cultural heritage.

Members of the Transylvania Trust will travel to Brussels for a special meeting with the European Commission on the 14th of October, to finalise the details of the project, and to exchange ideas with the other beneficiaries of the Culture Programme.
