Memoria

As part of the Memoria project each group has to draw up an inventory of local non material heritage in order to highlight areas which are most relevant for assisting the creation a more sustainable tourist industry.  Once the inventory has been prepared then thre will be a workshop where there will be more opportunity to finalise the areas of greatest interest.  The photograph shows the group about to consider themes for the inventory.
