Heritage Dialogues of Coastal North 27.07.-4.08. 2024

Heritage Dialogues is a cooperation project between Norway and Estonia with the involvement of the Nordic-Baltic region. The international  HeritageDialogues week 2024 lasts from 29.07 to 4.08 in small coastal villages near Bodo—Givær and Fleinvaer islands, Ljønes, and Skjerstad village, Norway, dedicated to culturl capitals of Europe. Workshops in the coastal villages are dedicated to the synergies of heritage and heritage communities, vernacular architecture, cultural landscapes, and seascapes in the face of climate change. Several concerts, exhibitions, and art installations will be held dedicated to the resilience and beauty of cultural landscapes.

During the workshop days, participants share knowledge about heritage communities’ heritage values and perspectives. Artists and musicians resonate with the landscapes and histories. The international perspective is given via the Estonian and Nordic-Baltic angle, rights-based approaches and climate justice, holistic community-centred approach to heritage and cultural landscape conservation. International heritage expert participants will work on locally-based solutions for Europe’s green transition, focusing on climate justice, buildings, and the resilience of coastal livelihoods.
