Project – Heritage and Maritime Memories in the 2 seas Region

Programme: 2007 - 2013 2 SEAS (FR-UK-BE-NL)
Theme: QUALITY OF LIFE
Keywords: Cultural heritage and arts Community integration and common identity

Description:
HMS wants to establish a solid crossborder partnership, to jointly improve, develop and promote the common maritime heritage and shared history in the 2 Seas area. Together, these maritime heritage organisations from all four countries of the area wish to contribute to the growth and competitiveness of the 2 seas area.
The 30 partners form a tight, diverse and complementary network of maritime heritage actors with a common crossborder identity, and range from local authorities, museums and attractions to small-sized organisations working with voluntary groups.
Partners will focus on ensuring physical access to maritime heritage, via conservation activities, but also providing accessibility and up-to-date visitor facilities. The interpretation of maritime heritage by diverse audiences will be addressed via attractive and multi-lingual information and guides. Partners will also raise awareness of maritime heritage by organising events such as cross-border maritime exhibitions or sea shanty festivals.
