Summary of project results


The main goal of the project is the digitization of the movable and immovable cultural and historical heritage from the funds of some of the most important cultural institutions on the territory of the Municipality of Plovdiv, namely the National Library Ivan Vazov, OI "Old Plovdiv", RAM, REM, and the City Art Gallery. One of the specific objectives of the project is the construction of an infrastructure for the digitization of cultural heritage. In this connection, two stationary digital centers and four mobile digitization stations was created under the project, which will guarantee the sustainability of the process of digitalization of the cultural heritage in the city of Plovdiv. The digital centers built under the project are in line with the EU's Digital Agenda for Europe, which aims to support economic development in the member states through the creation of sustainable business projects based on the implementation of digital technologies to achieve a smart , sustainable and inclusive growth within the EU. Digitized are 50 030 units of cultural heritage of Plovdiv Municipality, with 10% of the digitized content being related to the Roma cultural heritage. To achieve 10% of Roma cultural artifacts, a Roma ethnographic expedition took place within the project. The digitization of the Roma movable and immovable cultural and historical heritage took place for the first time in Plovdiv. This activity contributes uniquely to the preservation of the cultural traditions of the Roma population and to its better integration into the cultural life not only of Bulgaria but also of Europe.
