"Forgetting to remember, remembering to Forget"
Rodney Harrison

Innovative, replicable and sustainable Private Public Cooperation management models 
of the abandoned historical sites by setting up Cultural and Creative Industries.

Are we Ghost Busters? 
Yes, we are!

We are sure you know the feeling when you see a beautiful building abandoned by citizens and inhabited by „ghosts”.
You might have also seen iconic buildings with blind windows, hollow halls, yawning gates. 
Places where people worked, loved, lived before. Places where earlier happiness or success glowed out from windows.
Places where you had your first date, you shared your first kiss.

In these moments  your heart has been squeezed for sure, but your brain tried to find out what could be a new role for these venues,
how their ghosts could be busted out. In Forget Heritage we have the opportunity to develop a method and an application 
to help cities in Central Europe to revitalize their forgotten heritage.

 We focus on citizens’ involvement into planning and we would like to involve creative industry enterprises into implementation.
We will develop together a management manual – Ok, we know you have heard a lot of about management manuals which became ghosts of drawers – but in this case we will test this manual on pilot projects.

Almost all of our partners have a pilot project, where their own ghost buildings will come to life with creative industry partners.
 With local governments as public, citizens and creative SMEs as private partners, we are sure that we are building powerful ghostbuster teams throughout Europe.

PROJECT SUMMARY

Forget Heritage will tackle the question of how to improve capacities of the public and private sector or sustainably using cultural heritage 
and resources in Italy, Slovenia, Germany, Poland, Croatia and Czech Republic. Most cities in these countries are characterised by the presence 
of unused historical buildings such as former factories, hospitals, chools, barracks that have marked the history of the local community.
Now, in a state of neglect, their historical memory is being forgotten and they have a negative impact on the surrounding areas by turning into "urban voids”.  

The objective of Forget Heritage is to promote cooperation among participating cities in order to identify innovative replicablend sustainable 
private public cooperation management models of the abandoned historical sites - recognised as cultural heritage.The partnership aims
to provide recommendations for other cities on how to enhance the hidden potential of the cultural heritage to influence the quality of life
of the citizens and cultural creative industry operators who will have new working opportunities and boost their managerial skills. 


Further results envisioned are: a management manual, transnational training model and - in view of pilot actions an ex-ante assessment and ex-post evaluation.
The project will also develop tools to indicate buildings in underutilised areas ideal for cultural and creative use.
Transnational cooperation allows to find novel solutions. Collective results to influence national policies, 
develop human resources a
nd strengthen local managerial systems are the added value of this collaboration.
