Summer School for Rural Space as Cultural Heritage
The Directorate of Modern Cultural Heritage (DMCH) of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports, in Collaboration with other institutions, has succesfully organized for two consecutive years (2018 & 2019) the Summer School for Rural Space as Cultural Heritage, held in the mountain community of Dimitsana in the prefecture of Arcadia.
The Summer School is an institution where state officials, cultural heritage professionals and members of the academic community meet for an intensive programme of presentations, exchange of opinions and field study of issues relating to the management of rural space as cultural heritage. The issue of intangible cultural heritage as a resource for the sustainable development of inaccessible and disadvantaged mountain regions is one of the areas of joint concern and exchange of views.
For the purposes of the Summer School the Directorate of Modern Cultural Heritage put together and published an informative booklet on Rural Space as Cultural Heritage:
