THOUSANDS OF YEARS OF TRADITION WILL BE PROTECTED WITH THE EU PROJECT

Under the leadership of the EU Presidency, the Central Finance and Contracts Authority is the contracting authority and the Cross-Border Tales Project, which will be coordinated by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, has started work under the leadership of the Gaziantep Development Foundation (GAGEV).

In the works to be carried out within the scope of "Common Cultural Heritage: Protection and Dialogue Between Turkey and the EU-II Grant Program", Germany-Hessen Municipality will contribute to the works as a project partner of "Brüder-Grimm Haus Museum" and Gaziantep Metropolitan Municipality as an associate.

Within the scope of the project, which aims to spread practices in the field with a permanent model by supporting the protection of intangible cultural heritage, it is aimed to protect the intangible cultural heritage by scanning, compiling and recording Gaziantep city tales.

With the project, it is envisaged to encourage potential storytellers, to increase awareness of the intangible cultural heritage through workshops and promotion activities and to contribute to its sustainable implementation, and to support the studies on international platforms by creating a communication space based on experience sharing between us and the EU.

GAGEV Chairman of the Board and Gaziantep Governor Davut Gül emphasized that it would be a good achievement for our city to keep alive and spread this tradition that is about to disappear.
