The focus of the workshop goes beyond the traditional role of the museum and includes the concept of the entire historic city as a living museum, getting away from the definition of a museum as a physical structure with four walls and a door and includes the cultural spaces, traditional skills, community and other tangible and intangible cultural heritage. Major topics of the workshop include: The city as a Living Museum, identifying cultural spaces, supporting grassroots living culture, revival and support of traditional skills, Sustainable development etc.
