Heritage Club’s Course “Cultural Heritage and Activism”
Heritage Clubs 3rd course “Cultural Heritage and Activism” has launched.
On the first lecture listeners discussed the definition of civil society and society’s inclusiveness phases. Group practical exercises included brainstorming on the importance of civic activism.
Course is lead by representatives of “NGO Monitoring of Cultural Heritage” Paata Alaverdashvili and Diana Kakashvili.
The aim of the course is to introduce the concept of civil activism to participants through the overview of historical and recent experience of civil activism in the sphere of heritage. Participants will gain theoretical knowledge as well as develop their practical skills in the campaign planning and its realization. They will also be introduced to effective communication tools.
The Heritage Club was established within the project “Cultural Heritage at Risk – Engaging Civil Society and Media” which is funded by Swedish Institute.
