LIVIND Workshop on Cultural Heritage Education

What is cultural heritage education and how to do it? What are the goals and best practices in working together with children and young people in living heritage projects?

The Finnish Heritage Agency invited the Association of Cultural Heritage Education in Finland to give a 2-hour activating workshop that you can participate for free!

For more than 15 years, the Association for Cultural Heritage Education in Finland has developed methods for working with children and the young. In this workshop we share practical examples of our projects and our ways of working, including best practices but also mistakes we’ve learned from. The workshop’s special focus is on the participatory approach to shared cultural heritage.

Good practices and discussions

In the workshop we…

  • learn about what cultural heritage education is and how it is done through real life examples
  • get inspiration for creating new pedagogical projects
  • get to try yourself methods for cultural heritage education & exercises that can be applied with different groups, such as the Spinner of Living Heritage and Present-Past-Future Walk
  • share, discuss and network internationally with living cultural heritage experts and actives!
