public works has been invited to run a workshop on cultural mapping in Nikosia as part of the Euromed Heritage programme an EU funded programme which contributes to mutual understanding and dialogue between cultures through the Mediterranean region.

The workshop will take place from the 17th to the 19th of June. You can read more about the workshop in the Euromed Heritage press release.

We have been invited via Dr Julie Scott, Senior Research Fellow for Tourism, Culture and Development from London Metropolitan Business School. Julie and our path have crossed on many different projects which dealt with aspects cultural mapping (e.g. Folkestonomy) and tangible or intangible history (e.g. Folk Float)

We are also currently collaborating with Julie and Jonathan on an EU funded project in India adventurously entitled Ethnomagic which is lead by Banglanatak a very energetic NGO based in Kolkata, India.
