OpenArch 2011-2015 (Culture Project)
What it is about:
OpenArch is an application for a Culture project, building on the success of EXARC. We have good experience in international cooperation, and now intend to intensify that by joining forces of 10 museums and EXARC itself for a period of 5 years.
The main idea of is to present both the tangible and intangible past to the public. The tangible parts of Archaeological Open-Air Museums are the archaeological remains and the reconstructions of these (houses, ships, complete environments). The intangible and most interesting part of an is the story of the people that once lived there.
The objective of OpenArch is to create a permanent partnership of archaeological open air museums throughout Europe with the aim of developing attractive and excellent experiences for the public, focusing on common European heritage, especially the intangible elements of past culture, and including European-wide exchanges of best practice and intensified co-operation between museums workers.
The ultimate goal of the OpenArch project is therefore to help museums and their broader network to become more professional, and to demonstrate the value of working on a European level for the benefit of the visitor experience.
