Pa16/ro12 „conservation and revitalisation of cultural and natural heritage” Program – Small grants scheme of the Financial Mechanism See 2009-2014, the program operator is the Ministry of culture – the project management unit.
By developing this project we wanted to create a collaboration network between the 7 fortified churches in Romania listed on the Unesco heritage: Câlnic, Prejmer, Viscri, Dârjiu, Saschiz, Biertan, Valea Viilor. Some of the missions we assumed with this project are as follows: the conservation and restoration of the murals inside and outside the fortified church in Dârjiu, the development and creation of a mural exhibition inside the objective, where we were able to present to the general public the connection between the traditions of Hungarian and Transylvanian Saxon minorities. All the project activities aimed at developing the touristic potential of these areas. The traditions of the 7 communities around the fortified churches can be now seen in a documentary film we made within this project. The end of the project took place in the middle of the community, and it was an exciting moment for everyone, the Civitas team and the Dârjiu community.
” "The most important lesson we learned by being involved in this project is that if you have a dream and you can visualize it, you only have to work hard, be perseverant and follow the direction you set. No hard- ship will seem too big.”Kulcsár Orsolya Project Manager
