The project Vrancea Culture and National Heritage Online-Google Maps&QR was initiated in January 2013 in order to provide a greater exposure of Vrancea county cultural and heritage points of interest. Materials used in this project belong to the County Department for Culture and National Heritage and represent the bulk of an on-going research and data gathering activity, focusing on religious, historic, heritage monuments, traditions and customs, as well as cultural and touristic areas, itineraries and objectives from Vrancea county among other things.
The joint effort of the two institutions, Potpourri Association and County Department for Culture and National Heritage, is a response to the Vrancea community needs of making its culture known better and of receiving the appreciation that the natural beauty of the environement and skills of its inhabitants fully deserve.
It is the long term hope of this project, to encourage cultural tourism, to get support in protecting and preserving both heritage monuments and the environment, to stimulate the local interest in keeping and passing on the local traditions and customs, and to raise the awareness of the local authorities and the communities about the fact that our identity and values must be protected.
The project will promote on-line information about Vrancea’s culture and national heritage, using the following resources:
– Youtube.com, Issuu.com, Google Maps, QR codes, Social Networks (Facebook and Google+) with support from Potpourri Association and Vrancea Bloggers’ Community
Offline, the layout of this project will be printed in a guide which will be freely distributed to the public and educational county institutions and local NGOs. Offline promotion of the project will be made through mass-media and informal channels.
During this project we count on our community support for informal dissemination.
The project team thanks you!
