Project ERDF Financing: 215406,91 €
Project call: 2nd call
Aim of the project is to improve the quality of the public services of the LOAM and Kuldiga in field of cultural heritage preservation by strengthening the capacity of the personnel and encouraging the cross-border cooperation between two institutions in LT and LV. Project is tackling such common problems as rapidly deteriorating condition of wooden architectural heritage; lack of the understanding of the unique value of the wooden heritage; lack of the knowledge for preservation of the wooden housing. LV and LT have experienced interrupted process of the maintenance of historical buildings that resulted from lack of the private property from Soviet time ideology. Therefore one generation has risen up without knowledge about management of old houses and residents have lost their practical skills. To solve the problems there will be implemented such activities as renewal of the restoration workshop at LOAM; arrangement of the new restoration centre premises in Kuldiga; improvement of the qualification of the restoration specialists by organisation of the international seminars; establishment of the methodological work; development of the new contemporary instruments for the public services. Study visit to Great Britain enable to introduce with high quality public services from the countries with common knowledge about preservation of historical houses through centuries. As a result of the project, there will be improved efficiency of the public services in field of cultural heritage preservation that will ensure preservation of the wooden architecture in cross border countries that is considered as unique resources for the economy of Lithuania and Latvia.

During the visit partners gain historical, practical and theoretical knowledge of preservation of historical houses, management of the cultural heritage and change the examples of good practice.
