The project was launched in July 2018 and is planned to continue to July 2020.

Objectives for our cities

Lviv in the ReHERIT Project

The core activity is the implementation of the second part of The Space of Synagogues project.  The site of the destroyed Great City Synagogue is imperceptible in the city’s public space.  However, the conservation of its foundation with appropriate markings will add more visibility to the site and will bring in new participants to the dialog.

At the same time, the project team will develop a perception of mutual responsibility for the common heritage by working with tourist guides, educators, other stakeholders.  They will also hold sociological surveys to find out how the locals perceive the cultural heritage, they will prepare analytical studies  and guidelines on working with the cultural heritage.

Uman in the ReHERIT Project

The team will be developing the Tourism and Pilgrimage Ecosystem Development Strategy, will hold sociological surveys, will prepare study materials for teachers and tourist guides, analytical studies  and guidelines on working with the cultural heritage. Simultaneously, they will be working with teachers, guides, local authorities, civil society organizations and initiatives in order to form a community of people who work with the city’s cultural heritage.

10 regions of Ukraine

In addition to Lviv and Uman, the project team will invite a range of other cities from Central and Western Ukraine into working on the cultural heritage.  Primarily to improve the capacity of managing the cultural heritage on the local level, they will hold several training workshops and will announce a call for mini-grants.
