Tržič capacity building seminar provides valuable insight for the upcoming live experiment

Following a dynamic capacity-building seminar titled "How might we revive historic towns through interventions in public spaces?" hosted by the REVIVE project, participants left with some very innovative ideas. The event, held on May 8th , brought together more than 100 professionals, students, cultural heritage enthusiasts, and stakeholders intersted in heritage protection and revitalisation.


The seminar, which aimed to explore sustainable and inclusive solutions for breathing new life into historic sites, proved to be success. Drawing inspiration from the New European Bauhaus, participants engaged in ldiscussions and gained valuable insights from a lineup of esteemed speakers each sharing their experiences in related fields. 


Attendees were introduced to the REVIVE project, its mission, and current stage, providing crucial context for the rest of the seminar. 


Kristian Krog from Maltfabrikken led a thought-provoking session on placemaking methods, encouraging participants to rethink the role of public spaces in historic contexts. 

Enrique Mínguez Martínez, an architect and professor at UCAM, inspired attendees with his discussion on interventions in public spaces as opportunities for local communities. 

Aleksander Ostan, assistant professor at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Ljubljana, offered valuable insights into open spaces and sustainable architecture in protected heritage areas, drawing examples from Slovenia. His presentation illuminated the potential of sustainable design practices in preserving and revitalizing historic sites, sparking further discussion on the integration of modern technologies and traditional craftsmanship.

Loredana Stasisin, architectural heritage specialist charged the audience with her experience and projects in the field of heritage and cultural sustainability. 


Key messages from Revive speakers were: 

  • Revitalisation vs greenfield investments 

  • People are the ones making changes - engagement for re-development 

  • Different sustainable solutions of urban elements

  • Paradigm changing from industrial to re-urbanisation and sustainable city 

  • Vision – small interventions matter 

  • Heritage revitalisation WITH and FOR citizens 


The seminar concluded with an announcement of the upcoming live experiment in Tržič starting July 11th and an Online capacity building seminar for Turku experiment which will be held on September 3rd under the title: Heritage revival through digital technologies. 


Overall, the seminar served as a catalyst for collaboration and innovation in the world of historic preservation. By fostering knowledge exchange and inspiring actionable strategies, the event provided much needed guidance and insight for the upcoming REVIVE live experiments.
