Sharing training tools and a directory of oral heritage mediaECOHOMY is the multiplication of meetings with the inhabitants of 3 rural territories:

  • the valley of the Baume and the Drobie in Ardèche (France),

  • the Dryanovo region in the Rhodope Mountains (Bulgaria),

  • the Val Venosta region in South Tyrol (Italy)


These meetings are intergenerational and real (no video!): they are undertaken by young Europeans (French, Bulgarian, Italian) between 18 and 30 years old. Curious about what rural life has been like in the past, what it has become or what it will become in the future, these young people, supervised by the ECOHOMY team, go in search of stories, stories, songs or legends.

All the corpus of inhabitant lyrics (French, Bulgarian and South Tyrolean) are now archived at the AMTA (Agence des Musique des territoires d'Auvergne) https://amta.fr. Selected interviews are available online on the infrasound platform: https://www.infrasons.org/

ECOHOMY is the organization of 5 workshops allowing mixed Franco-Bulgarian, Italian-French-Bulgarian groups to exchange their culture and to be in total immersion on one of the 3 experimental territories (Ardèche, Rhodopes, South Tyrol). During these workshops, the Ecohomy team teaches:

  • interview techniques based on role plays and offers concrete experiences with the inhabitants, the real ones!

  • ways of understanding rural territories by analyzing their components and proposing a reflection on the development of alternative tourism based on culture.

  • moments of shared artistic creation: exploration of his voice, oral expression, accompaniment of the public, staging of the landscape.

    B.A.A.T. (Bulgarian Association for Alternative Tourism's), a Bulgarian association that acts in the field of ecotourism, guarantees the feasibility of the tools as a response to current social and economic imperatives, (Website B.A.A.T. : here)

  • CERMOSEM, a branch of the Université Grenoble Alpes, located in the Ardèche - plays the role of evaluator "in itinere". He takes a reflective look at all the actions undertaken during the project. Specialized in the field of training and research on heritage, he shapes educational tools.. (Website Cermosem : here)

Results:
> The ECOHOMY project consists of two guides that will multiply each year the young people who will be introduced to the mediation of the European oral heritage.
> The ECOHOMY project is the possibility of continuing the links between: local authorities, cultural actors, tourism actors, inhabitants and young mediators, thanks to a referencing of about fifty structures and individuals carrying the European oral heritage.
