🎉 Exciting news!
In December last year, I conducted a mentorship training session in partnership with HAEMUS for the “Young European Heritage Makers” competition. The training was well-received and drew the attention of many passionate educators, particularly those teaching in primary and secondary schools throughout Macedonia. One of the attendees was Tanja Stojanovska Petkov, a dedicated teacher from OOU “St. Kliment Ohridski” in Drachevo, Skopje.
My mentoring of European projects has led to a big win for teacher Tanja Stojanovska Petkov and her second grade students at Elementary School “St. Clement of Ohrid” in Dracevo, Skopje! 🏆 They were awarded for the best “European Young Heritage Creators” for their incredible “Macedonian Tradition” project, and I couldn’t be prouder to have played a small part in their success. 🤝
The project highlights the traditional craft of creating dolls from everyday objects like wooden spoons, brooms, and straw, using fabrics and wool. Through this, the project teaches students about the history and culture of Macedonia, and how girls and boys used to play with these dolls in the past. 🧒👧 🧒👧
It’s an honor to have been involved in such a valuable project, and I’m thrilled that heritage interpretation it’s been recognized at a European level. Check out the full project here 👉 https://bit.ly/3XwG8Gb and let me know what you think! 🤩
🌟 This is what Storytelling Skopje is all about – showcasing the rich heritage of Skopje through creative interpretation! 🎨 My goal is to contextualize and visualize our city’s unique history and culture using heritage interpretation as a tool for creativity. I believe that heritage is not just about preserving the past, but also about inspiring new ideas and creativity. By exploring our city’s traditions and customs, we can find new ways to express ourselves and celebrate our heritage in modern times. 🌇
Join me on this exciting journey of discovery and creativity, and let’s celebrate the rich heritage of Skopje together! 🙌
