The key project objective is to make a concerted effort to study, document and promote the common religious cultural heritage of the cross-border Bulgaria-Greece region. The Holy Metropolis of Alexandroupolis, Traianoupolis and Samothrace is the Lead Partner of the project.
The other partners of the project are:
- Holy Metropolis of Drama.
- Holy Metropolis Neapolis & Stavroupolis.
- Holy Metropolis of Zichni and Nevrokopiou.
- Holy Metropolis of Nevrokopi, Bulgaria
- Cultural & Educational Technology Institute, “Athena”.
- SouthWestern “Neophit Rilski” University.
The project draws strength from the fact that religious affinity has been one of the most defining aspects of the common regional heritage, to raise the level of awareness on religious cultural heritage and develop joint actions which will strengthen both a common identity sense, with distinct characteristics, as well as to place the region firmly on the map of attractive thematic tourism destinations.
To this end the project shapes up a network of stakeholders sharing the mutual aim of studying and developing multilingual content and IT tools that will bond with existing infrastructures to establish a vision of promoting and developing the multitude of sacred monuments and entities of religious art, as well as reaffirming in practice the important educational function of the involved institutions.
