Cultural heritage, creative industry, biology, ethnology, creative economy, agro-biodiversity etc. Description Museum in the yard: indigenous varieties of Europe
The project is based on an interdisciplinary approach through the fields of culture, biology, agriculture, economics, ethnology and others. In terms of activities, the project will primarily focus on the development of the business model in the field of cultural heritage, and in addition, numerous exhibitions, presentations, educational programs, research work, fairs, conferences, etc.
The initial idea was already realized by the Project and author's exhibition " The Old and Indigenous Fruits of Serbia" 2013-2017), in which the problem of the disappearance of old fruit varieties in Serbia was presented in an attractive and scientific way. Two themes have been highlighted: the erosion of the autochthonous genotypes and the preservation of agro-biodiversity and traditional knowledge related to the rural environment.
In the period 2013-2017 the exhibition was exposed 28 times in the museums all over Serbia and it has over 40,000 visitors, as well as visible media campaign. The great interest of the visitors was also the motive to preserve in the yards (in sity) the dissapearing fruit varieties, as well as traditional knowledge in the proccesing of fruit as a unique heritage.
Within the project Museum in the yard: indigenous varieties of Europe through various activities (exhibition, publication, panel discussion, product fair, mapping of households in selected villages, etc.) partners from different European countries would deal with the preservation of their indigenous and traditional varieties not only of fruits, but also of vegetables and cereals, related to their use and inheritance of personal stories of the population that are related to the history of breeding. One of the most important activities would be the formation of a "museum in the yard" and working with the local population, where it would be aimed at motivating the audience for interactive participation in the research and preservation of various varieties of their area.
The priorities of the project are the development of the audience and the development of the business model in order to sustainability of the heritage preserve. Through the integrated activities of partners from participating countries, each country could present its traditional varieties of fruits, vegetables or cereals to promote experience and knowledge in use in the processing of autochthonous products, with an emphasis on their preservation and sustainability for future populations.
Through participatory activities with the public, attention is paid to the importance of preserving the cultural heritage of natural resources and the specificities of all parts of Europe.
