Rescue the farmhouse in Dunaföldvár
Summary of project results
The Municipality of Dunaföldvár town intended to make built cultural heritage become commonly available for the whole society, and to make socially disadvantaged groups access these cultural goods with equal opportunities, and also to improve and broaden the supply of local cultural and social services according to needs. Within the scope of the project, the Project Promoter authentically restored a farmhouse of deteriorated condition. They renovated, extended and converted the outbuilding into an activity hall at No. 19 Attila Street, having strong relation to the traditional, local rural life style of the 19th century, the building complex and the surroundings being under the protection of local historic monuments. Altogether 1 825 sqm of forecourt, rear garden and court devastated and completely neglected were restored in a traditional way (planting herbs and fruit trees) by the common, voluntary effort of the locals. The project activities also involved restoration and cleaning of the furnishing of the house. By the implementation of the project, the whole complex was converted into an enjoyable traditional country farmstead with green environment and an exhibition area for local ethnography and history. The current homestead has a permanent exhibition featuring everyday items and traditional clothing. There is also a separate space dedicated to hold handcrafting and ethnographic workshops for children or smaller adult groups. With the help of the partners, there were workshops and camps held primarily for 6-18 year olds, and regular events (lectures) were launched for all interested parties to present and revive the activities related to the traditional rural life form (crafts) and local traditions as well.
