Patterns: Erasmus+ Project
- PATTERNS is an ERASMUS+ project between Romanian, Polish, Estonian and Finnish cultural heritage organization and foundations:
Fundacja Dom from Bialystok, Poland
Comunitatea Armana din Romania - filiala Bucuresti from Bucharest, Romania
Galeria im. Sleńdzińskich from Bialystok, Poland
Forssa museum from Forssa, Finland
SA Narva Muuseum, from Narva, Estonia
During this project these partner institutions and non-governmental organizations will learn about the methods of conducting educational activities with their partners. They will share knowledge and learn about good practices of education and popularization of art and textile heritage and using online tools, which in crises such as the current pandemic are essential for reaching out to the community.
The project will look at the differences and similarities in fabric design in the period of the second half of the 20th century in different parts of Europe. Inhabitants of the cities where the partner institutions come from will be able to connect with the wider European cultural, industrial and textile heritage of the 20th century as well as with the local history through the partner institutions and organizations.
During this project the partner organizations will visit each other to network and strengthen the international connections and cooperation between our cultural heritage organizations.We are planning to develop know-how, collegial cohesion, and an increase of expertise in the field of European textile production traditions. The ultimate goal is to strengthen the collection and digital practices of textile museums and to create a discussion platform on which to collaborate.
