FOLLOW-UP ASTRA Multicultural, 13 – 19 June 2016

Between 13 and 19 June 2016, visitors of the Open Air Museum from Dumbrava Sibiului participated in activities organized within ASTRA Multicultural, an extensive event dedicated to making cultural heritage of ethnic minorities accessible for the general public. „Open Heritage: Increased public accessibility to multi-ethnic heritage values in the Astra Museum” is the pre-defined project financed through EEA Grants, Programme PA16/RO12.

The event brought together more than 50 craftsmen who participated in a fair. Craftsmen held a museum education program "Creativity at the multi-ethnic school" and workshops dedicated to processing metal (coppersmiths, goldsmiths, blacksmiths) and wood (rudars). Also, there were organized workshops presenting the manufacture of peasant sandals, traditional costumes, puppets and masks.

Folk music bands performed on the stage, along with Saxon, Roma, Croatian, Hungarian and Romanian music ensembles.

In the Auditorium of the Multicultural Museum Pavilion, inaugurated in May 2016, they were presented creations such as "Șeica Mica - Multiculturalism on TARNAVA Mare", "The story of migrants from Hitra Island" and "Mila 23 - Lipovan Cradle" in the documentary film festival. The Auditorium hosted a scientific session on multiculturalism.

The event was attended by students from Brădeanu School, along with craftsman Doina Musat, who held a workshop presenting the manufacture of peasant sandals. On this occasion, the students put into practice the skills acquired in the project "Around the world on foot. The story of 497 pairs of peasant sandals", financed as well through EEA Grants Programme PA16/RO12.
