Summary of project results

 

The purpose of the project was to show cultural diversity, familiarize Hungarian, Roma and Scandinavian folk music and dance, form an international co-operation regarding cultural fields. A folklore camp was established where participants got acquainted with traditions through lectures, crafts and dance-house together with Icelandic participants. The depth of intercultural dialogue was further strengthened by the journey to Iceland where people living there could have a taste of the Hungarian culture, whereas the Hungarian participants learnt the background of the Scandinavian mythology. They gave a concert in the cathedral of Dómkirkjan, presented the „On the road of our ancestors” performance at the Reykjavík Cultural Festival. During professional platforms, they involved the Icelandic population in such interactive activities as photo exhibition, performances and workshops. The project made it possible to produce a further performance shown in several surrounding settlements. The two-part performance was created jointly with the Icelandic partners, based on the topic of the world of tradition. The marketing leaflet Kul-TÚRA was also created to present the results of the project. The project was crowned by a project closing event where the Ambassador of Norway to Hungary Olav Berstad also attended.
