PROJECT CALL: 3rd call

“Everything new is well-forgotten old” and “it isn’t about age, it’s about attitude” – these two statements are the main core of the project. “Old like new” is about helping old people not to get old in their mind (lifelong learning).

It is about old (traditional) wisdom that nowadays can be used as innovative or alternative, like healing herbs, health rituals, healing music, healthy food and products of nature.

7 villages in Daugavpils and Zarasai region – Višķi, Biķernieki, Kalkūni, Kalupe, Salakas, Smalvos, and Degučiai – want to be seen in new light with active, educated, healthy, creative and content people.

Project emphasizes sense of community, cooperation between generations, providing a chance to bring different generations together for lifelong learning, cooperation, transfer of traditional knowledge and wisdom as well as ability to see new opportunities and added value in the way sense of community contributes to the level of improvement of life in their villages.

During the project various activities will be implemented in Daugavpils and Zarasai regions:

  • Culture classes and “Young days” cinema for elderly people;
  • Creative history and memory writing classes for youth together with seniors;
  • Healthy lifestyle camp for elderly people in Smalvos village;
  • Healing art activities (music, felting and gardening workshops) in social care centers and libraries;
  • Theatre camp and community theatre classes;
  • Festivals “The Healing Water” with underwater cinema and “Alternative Rural story telling” with good old stories told and shown in a modern way;
  • Centre of Culture of Zarasai municipality will purchase outstanding midi-bus to be used for spread of “CULTURE ON THE WHEELS”.

“Old like new” means to find a solution to improve living conditions in deprived communities in creative approach – THE OLD (traditions, events, people, etc.) making into THE NEW – finding, creating and telling stories about uniqueness of their villages and make them feel proud instead of abandoning them.
