The joint project of the National Historic Heritage Park in Ópusztaszer and the Historical Archives in Senta (Living Archives – The Relics of Common Cultural Heritage) that is being realized within the Interreg-IPA CBC Hungary-Serbia program, had its opening ceremony on 29 March 2018 in the National Historic Heritage Park in Ópusztaszer.
Based on an intergrated joint bilateral institutional project management, implementation and scientific cooperation, the project will include publication of four books (two source books based on in-depth, thorough research of the archives documents, and two collection of studies about the researched material and agricultural cultural heritage), numerous PR-activities and publicity products (travelling exhibition, interactive website and a „living database”), restoration works on agricultural power machines, setting up an information stone installation, construction of exhibition building for the agricultural power machines. The purpose of the project is to identify and promote through different events, publicity events, pr-materials, publications and youth camps the undocumented agricultural cultural values that will be identified by experts of cultural history – archive workers, ethnographers, antropologists and historians. Old, undocumented artifacts will receive a firm, scientific background which will give a complete picture of the regions agricultural life, and social background – a field that has not been presented thoroughly enough. The outcomes will be the broader, enriched scope of activity and content of the partner institutions, an updated map of common agricultural cultural heritage and the higher awareness of cultural heritage among citizens.
