Announcing the 2019 Regional Restoration Camps

The CHwB Regional Restoration Camps represent a simple, successful, scalable training model, which grew, from 2007 to 2019, from a few students in Albania to multiple sessions in four countries, with a diverse array of participants. The Camps form part of a Balkans-wide push to encourage people to value and care for their local heritage. The main objectives are to use cultural heritage to build relations among young professionals, creating conditions for reconciliation as a prerequisite for peace and democracy, and to preserve traditional crafts and techniques.

The 2019 Regional Restoration Camps will provide participants with engaging lectures and hands-on experience with restoration and conservation, using traditional materials and techniques, as well as with the interpretation of cultural heritage sites and museums. During each Camp, participants will follow a rigorous but very fulfilling schedule, which combines theory – through lectures and presentations – with exercises and physical work on historic monuments and artifacts in different locations around the region. 

The Regional Restoration Camps 2019 will be organized in 3 different locations, spread in 3 countries in the Region.  45th RRC Gjakova8 – 19 June Conservation of museum artifacts & interpretationApplication Deadline:  15 April 46th RRC Gjirokastra15 – 27 September Building conservation & interpretationApplication Deadline:  28 June  47th RRC Rogljevo15 – 27 September Building conservation & interpretationApplication Deadline:  28 June
