Description

This year the award-winning Cultural Heritage without Borders (CHwB) Regional Restoration Camps are back, with a series of 4 camps held across the Western Balkans.

The 21st through 24th Regional Restoration Camps will provide participants with engaging lectures and hands-on experience with restoration and conservation, using traditional materials and techniques, as well as with the interpretation and management of cultural heritage sites and museums. During each 10-day camp, participants will follow a rigorous but very fulfilling schedule, which combines theory – through lectures and presentations – with exercises and physical work on historic monuments and artifacts in Albania, Kosovo or Serbia.

Last year, the Camps won an EU Prize for Cultural Heritage/Europa Nostra Award in the category of “Education, Training and Awareness Raising”. Don’t miss your chance to take part in this incredible experience!
