The project “Ceramics and its dimensions” was presented at the event “Accessibility of cultural heritage in creative and audio-visual projects.”

This event devoted to cultural heritage was held at the Splendid Palace cinema at Elizabetes iela 61 on 14 September 2018, as a part of the European Cultural Heritage Day’s Culture and Media” sub-programme.

The project “Ceramics and its dimensions” was presented as part of the programme, with Riga Porcelain Museum being one of the partners. The project was introduced by Iliana Veinberga, Riga Porcelain Museum’s Head Collection Curator.

The project “Ceramics and its dimensions” gained financial support through the Creative Projects tender under the EU programme “Creative Europe”. 2018 is the fourth and concluding year of this project. The project offers a range of activities for both professional and general audiences reflecting the past and present use of ceramic materials and modelling future scenarios by shifting the way ceramics are viewed. Understanding ceramics is not just important in a cultural and heritage context, as ceramics also play an important role in contemporary scientific and industrial developments, for example in auto manufacturing, IT and medical care.

According to the organisers: “Through the example of the involvement of Latvian cultural organisations in promoting heritage accessibility, with the support of the European Union, we will encourage the popularisation of creative and multifaceted cultural heritage accessibility. We will conclude the event with a screening of the film Fur White Shirts, directed by Rolands Kalniņš, as well as hearing the story of the film’s great success at foreign film festivals after its debut at the Cannes Film Festival.” The Splendid Palace cinema was chosen as the event venue, as this is a Latvian cultural heritage sites.
