Project description

The aim of the project is to expand the experience and create two more centres that bring together local initiatives in the Gemer region. The centres aim to create space for the restoration of the local heritage: they aim at expanding the already ongoing reconstruction activities, training and improving the job skills of the unemployed from the marginalized Roma community in the field of restoration of monuments. The project includes the creation of tools, and workshops for the public, which are available free of charge to people living in the surrounding villages. These tools can be used by local community residents to repair their homes, and in individual or community projects. Complementary activities are activities to the out-of-school education system for children from local communities and practical education for the training of the local unemployed. The centres are also available for tourists, they are equipped with information materials about the sights of Gemer, to make the architectural gems of the region and the Gothic Way accessible to the general population.
