Cultural Identity in the Waddensea Region

WSF cultural identity wheelThe Trilateral Wadden Sea Cooperation (TWSC) in cooperation with the WSF is working in the field of cultural landscapes and heritage for quite a long time. Two main projects, Lancewad and LancewadPlan were carried out in the last decade. Recently, several follow-up workshops and meetings took place to work towards landscape characterization and an inventory of maritime archaeology.

Besides these work topics, other initiatives and projects with regard to cultural history, identity and cultural tourism have started in the recent past. Concrete projects like Footprints and AnyQuestions, carried out e.g. by Wadden Art, as well as organ culture were implemented.

The WSF intended to bring together the different topics and initiatives in order to better integrate the cultural issues in the development of the Wadden Sea Region and to further elaborate on the cultural grounds of the people living in the Region.

The WSF has established a transnational working group to elaborate on the common ground as a framework for projects in the field of cultural history and identity. This would include different cultural aspects like art, literature, traditions, organ culture and other modes of expression. Awareness, also among the political levels, would be an important objective too.

This website will provide news about initiatives, activities and projects in the field of cultural history and identity.
