Interpretive Writing for Natural and Cultural Heritage


 The Heritage Management Organization
Training Heritage Leaders
Autumn 2018
Executive Leadership Development in Heritage Management Workshops

Interpretive Writing for
Natural and Cultural Heritage

A jointly certified course by Interpret Europe and
the Heritage Management Organization

3-7 November 2018 (with available option of a 3-day course, 3-5 November)

Location: The Heritage Management Organization Headquarters
Kimonos 11 & Pagkalou streets, 19200, Elefsina, Greece

The key to effective word-based Heritage Interpretation is written text that grabs and holds the reader’s attention.
During a 5-day course participants will discover and practice a wide range of techniques to engage readers and master the techniques of interpretive writing. Participants will have the opportunity to strive to become a Certified Interpretive Writer awarded by Interpret Europe, the European Association for Heritage Interpretation, after successfully completing, and being assessed on, the following exercises:
1) develop a strong theme for a piece of interpretive writing
2) turn a poorly written and laid out graphic panel into a good example of interpretive writing and panel presentation
3) prepare a piece of interpretive writing incorporating the techniques taught in the course
4) edit and rewrite some difficult text utilizing the principles of interpretive writing and the importance of plain language

In addition to the tasks above, participants will take part in a range of other exciting activities. This includes a visit to the Elefsina archaeological site looking at how it is interpreted - creating a new graphic panel. Participants will also write a creative interpretive text about their chosen heritage feature in Elefsina.
3-day option
This year we are offering a 3-day option from 3-5 November. Participants selecting this option should be aware that 16 additional hours of coursework must be done at home, including completing the certification tasks. Please indicate your preference on the form.

Human Resource Management for Heritage Organizations


The Heritage Management Organization
Training Heritage Leaders
Autumn 2018
Executive Leadership Development in Heritage Management Workshops

Human Resource Management
for
Heritage Organizations
23-25 November, 2018

Location: The Heritage Management Organization Headquarters,
Kimonos 11 & Pagkalou, Elefsina, Greece
This workshop explores the crucial subject of people management in not-for-profit Heritage Organizations. People are simultaneously the largest single item of operating costs and the only source of conservation, service and innovation. They are therefore the key asset in all organizations focused on those objectives and the management of people is a key concern for executives.
During these 3 days, the importance of human resource management in not-for-profit organizations and the distinctive nature of such organizations (public and non-government; large and small) will be investigated. The different stages of management of employees and volunteers will also be examined, in an effort to identify the key issues and the practical options available to managers who are not HRM experts.
The course involves working with the participants to surface their issues and concerns, to encourage mutual sharing and learning and to developing ideas and networks.
Please note that these three days offer an opportunity for reflection and learning and for that, active participation from all course members is required. This course does not come with a pre-established set of answers. It is the firm belief of its organizers and leaders that whilst it is possible to learn from existing research and experience, there is no ‘one best way’ that fits every organization: people management is different in every context and it is the responsibility of managers in each case to understand their situation and to take appropriate action.
The workshop’s leader, Chris Brewster, is Professor of International Human Resource Management at the Henley Business School, University of Reading, UK. In addition to his teaching role and consultancy assignments for many private sector organizations, Prof. Brewster has worked with the United Nations, many of the UN organizations and agencies, the European Commission, the IFC and the AfDB, NGOs and other international organizations on various aspects of their own human resource management. A prolific author with 30 books and over 200 articles published, Prof. Brewster has also been entrusted with drafting the new six-year HRM strategy for UNESCO and was awarded in 2002 the Georges Petitpas Memorial Award by the World Federation of Personnel Management Associations (WFPMA) in recognition of his outstanding contribution to international human resource management. 

·         Suggested donation for participation: 1500 Euros (tuition, refreshments and light lunch).
·         American Express Foundation scholarships (partial or full coverage towards tuition, board and accommodation) will be available for participants from World Monuments Fund partner organizations (excluding airfare/travel expenses and our Organization’s membership fee).
·         Kaplan Foundation Scholarships (partial or full coverage towards tuition, board and accommodation) will be available for individuals actively involved in the research, study and promotion of the sites of Corinth, Delos, Larisa and Olympia (excluding airfare/travel expenses and our Organization’s 2018 membership fee).

Săptămâna Europeană a Limbilor - 2018

Săptămâna Europeană a Limbilor
21-29 septembrie 2018



Voi câte limbi vorbiţi? În fiecare an, pe 26 septembrie celebrăm Ziua Europeană a Limbilor. În 2018,  sărbătorim diversitatea lingvistică a Europei nu doar o singură zi, ci timp de o săptămână întreagă!
Reţeaua institutelor culturale europene, EUNIC România, şi Comisia Europeană, în parteneriat cu Muzeul Naţional de Istorie Naturală „Grigore Antipa”, Centrul Naţional de Cultură al Romilor „Romano Kher”şi Europa FM v-au pregătit o serie de evenimente speciale - ateliere, conferinţe, proiecţii de film, jocuri, concursuri şi o expoziţie– dedicate diversităţii lingvistice.
Se spune că e extraordinar să stăpâneşti mai multe limbi străine! Concret, cum ne ajută acest lucru să ne apropiem de oameni aparţinând unor culturi diferite şi să ne dezvoltăm pe plan personal? Ce se întâmplă în creierul fiecăruia dintre noi atunci când trecem de la o limbă la alta? Ar fi oare posibil, cândva, să vorbim limbi diferite dar să ne înţelegem între noi?Descoperiţi modul în care multilingvismul ne îmbunătăţeşte performanţele mentale și face casa noastră comună europeană mai trainică.

21.09, 17.30Atrium-ul Institutului Francez Bucureşti (Bd. Dacia 77)– „Cum traducem poezie; avantajele Festivalurilor internaţionale de poezie”, conferinţă cu participarea poeţilor Chantal Danjou (Franţa) şi Germain Droogenbroodt (Belgia). Conferinţă în limba franceză cu traducere simultană în limba română.
Autoare a peste treizeci de lucrări (poezie, eseu, proză), critic literar, doctor în literatură, profesor cu o carieră îndelungată, Chantal Danjou este, în prezent, formator în cadrul instituţiilor universitare care formează cadre didactice ; în paralel, contribuie la popularizarea poeziei contemporane în cadrul asociaţiei La Roue Traversière, căreia îi este membru fondator. Germain Droogenbrooteste poet, traducător şi editor. Volumele sale de poezie au fost publicate în 28 de ţări. Organizează sau face parte din consiliile de conducere ale unor evenimente europene prestigioase de poezie, precum Festivalul „Mihai Eminescu” din România, al cărui vice-preşedinte este. Chantal Danjou şi Germain Droogenbroot studiază evoluţia limbii în lirica actuală, modificările intervenite în adresare şi la nivel conceptual.
22.09, 17.00Cinema Elvire Popesco (Bd. Dacia 77)- proiecţie de film – La Cour de Babelde Julie Bertucelli (2013). Documentarul urmăreşte, timp de un an întreg, cotidianul unei clase de liceeni de la Colegiul parizian La Grange aux Belles. Toţi aceşti adolescenţi sunt veniţi din toate colţurile lumii, nu au prea multe în comun la început, iar şansa comunicării lor este învăţarea unei limbi comune, franceza în cazul de faţă… Film în mai multe limbi subtitrat în limba română
24.09, 18.30, Atrium-ul Institutului Francez Bucureşti (Bd. Dacia 77)– expoziţie – Traducerea automată : revoluţia inteligenţei artificiale.

Ce întrebuinţări ar putea avea? O expoziţie concepută de Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie, un lieu Universcience (Paris). Expoziţie prezentată în colaborare cu Bucharest Science Festival
24.09, 18.30Atrium-ul Institutului Francez Bucureşti (Bd. Dacia 77)Ce spun?

Autoare a numeroase lucrări, având o activitate de pionierat în domeniul studiilor interculturale ale învăţării limbilor străine în Franţa, Michèle Kail a schimbat abordarea cercetărilor în acest sector ştiinţific, privilegiind mai degrabă procesul de dobândire a cunoştinţelor decât competenţele finale. Cercetătoarea a contribuit la elaborarea unui model interconectat şi multicultural al înţelegerii şi utilizării unei limbi. Conferinţă în limba franceză cu traducere simultană în limba română.

MA program in Heritage Management

As part of its mission in promoting education and good practices in the field of heritage management, the Heritage Management Origanization also oversees the jointly awarded by Kent University and the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB) MA program in Heritage Management. 

The MA Heritage Management is a unique intensive three semester (one and a half academic year) postgraduate program, taught exclusively in English, which combines the worlds of archaeology and business and is taught in Athens at Elefsina, an area of world-class archaeological significance. It focuses on teaching the skills required for the management of heritage sites across the world and how to effectively work with archaeologists, architects, conservators, stakeholders, marketing and education specialists while fundraising and supervising specific projects (http://www.heritage.aueb.gr)

For the academic year 2018-2019, there are new scholarship opportunities for worthy candidates: 
1) One Bageion Foundation scholarship, worth €8000 (€4000 a year for two years) will be awarded annually to a good candidate from southern Albania(irrespective of nationality), with a preference to the area of Korçë-Korytsa. Successful candidates will have to demonstrate that there is a family connection to the area of preference of the scholarship and are encouraged to declare their interest to the area. 
The Bageion Foundation is one of the oldest foundations of Greece established during his lifetime by Ioannis Bagkas, a self-made immigrant to Alexandria Egypt, then Romania and then Athens from his hometown of Korytsa, Albania. Bagkas, remarkably in 1886, and before his own death, gave all his property to the Greek state keeping only an allowance of 1000 drachmas a month.
2) Four Bodossaki foundation half-scholarships will be awarded, each worth €3750, to worthy, deserving candidates. 
The Bodossaki Foundation was established in 1972 and is one of the most respected privately owned public-benefit organizations in Greece. It is the result of a long, strenuous and consistent effort of its founder, Prodromos Bodossakis – Athanasiadis to support the state, the society and his fellow people, as a legacy of the tradition he himself carried. The Bodossaki Foundation is currently active in four main strategic pillars: education, health, protection of the environment and the empowerment of civil society in Greece.
Inquiries for the MA program scholarships, should be addressed to Ms. Vasia Terzi at heritage@aueb.gror at v.terzi@kent.ac.uk

Photography and Photogrammetry in Cultural Heritage

HMO Training Heritage Leaders
Summer 2018
Executive Leadership Development in Heritage Management Workshops
Photography and Photogrammetry in Cultural Heritage
11-15 June, 2018
Location: Nafplion, Greece

Digital image acquisition and processing offers a wide range of deliverables for the documentation of cultural heritage. 3D models, orthophotos or point clouds are indispensable tools for the documentation and monitoring of our heritage and allow a better understanding of the objects under research. The construction of these products is based on various concepts in photography, photogrammetry and computer vision, which are available via easy-to-use software and generally available hardware. 
During this workshop, various techniqueswill be addressed and demonstrated during lectures and hands-on field work. Participants will get familiar with various digital tools (photography, photogrammetry, 3D modelling and model referencing, 360° photography, and vectorization in CAD or GIS) by covering the entire workflow from image acquisition via data processing to model publishing. After this workshop, participants will be able to apply these techniques in a wide range of applications (heritage management, archaeology, curatorial work etc.), concerning the various parameters for high quality 3D models and orthophotos.
The workshop’s instructor, Cornelis Stal, is a lecturer and researcher at the University College Ghent and Ghent University (Belgium), where he is working on surveying engineering, geomatics and image-based 3D modelling. Within the framework of his research, he has participated in various archaeological and anthropological field campaigns, where the topics of this workshop are empirically implemented in an interdisciplinary context.
This workshop is organized within the context of our organization’s mission to document the most historically significant structures of the city of Nafplion, the first capital of modern Greece, and which serves as the education arm of a larger research project conducted by the Heritage Management Organization in collaboration with CAST, ETH Zurich, Leica and other partners aiming to create and promote applications for the use of 3D documentation for heritage management.
