suhozidSEE Heritage’s member 4 GRADA DRAGODID successfully finalized a three-year effort to classify a skill of dry stone construction as an intangible cultural heritage in Croatia!

After a three-year period of preventive protection, in December 2016, a skill of dry stone construction has been listed permanently as an intangible cultural heritage in Croatia! The application has been sent in June 2016, and the last, very important step for protection of the dry stone construction skill was to include the database of all dry stone craftsmen, as well as the database of organizations that are dealing with this fascinating technique.

Knowing that it is not enough just to include a database of dry stone craftsmen that DRAGODID has collaborated with, this NGO formulated a public CALL over web and facebook page for all the dry wall craftsmen to submit an application. The campaign lasted for two months, and in the end there were 98 individual contacts and 19 legal entities collected, which is a lot. Thanks to the collaboration of all these people, DRAGODID will have a lot of material to show on the next meeting about the UNESCO nomination. After the collection of all applications, there were 35+18 applicants proposed for inclusion in the list of holders of the intangible asset. All details about the method of choice have been explained in the DRAGODID’s report, but experience was the most important as well as belonging to the tradition of the site, but also willingness to share knowledge with others, either verbally or practically. The most numerous applicants in the campaign were inhabitants of the island Rab. It is easy to locate all other hot spots on the map, and for the rest of the story click here.
