Aims of liveARCH See Story "behind" →
liveARCH is the first network of its kind, focussing on living history to disseminate historic knowledge, promoting a greater interest on our common European cultural heritage among the general public.
liveARCH adds a European dimension to archaeological open air museums and increases their professionalism. A European association of such museums (EXARC) was established already in 2001.  All museums in liveARCH are as well member of EXARC.
Archaeological open air museums are contributing to their local economies and maintaining social stability, whilst at the same time mediating between the local and the European dimensions. Strengthening this is one of
ARCH’s objectives. Another important objective is to enhance the quality of archaeological open air museums through an exchange of experience, best practice, through academic and practical training and through exchanges throughout the project period. liveARCH intends to establish good working relations between archaeological open air museums and academic institutions. These will play a key role in the planned training workshops.
Objectives will be achieved through a number of activities, like competence-building and awareness rising workshops, where staff of all co-organisers will participate and contribute with best practice exchanges. There will also be a number of staff exchanges, where staff from the co-organisers will travel to each other and participate in dissemination activities there.
In the future, visitors will have a new and exciting experience. We expect the long term results to be a high-quality presentation of important aspects of European history in an exciting and involving manner, combining local enthusiasm and the knowledge-base of established academic institutions, contributing to a sustainable and viable local economy. We further expect an increased cultural dialogue, an increase in highly skilled presenters and increased visitor numbers to the museums involved. Another long term result we envisage is a strengthened role of living history as a major method of dissemination history on a European level.
