Museum production

The project to make this museum began in early 2020 within the Prometheus Interreg POCTEFA project.  Shortly after, in full confinement and when the festivals could not be celebrated, we created a provisional museum of urgency, to replace in some way those parties that could not be celebrated in the streets of the villages. This is how the Prometheus.Museum began to walk.

The Museum has been the result of a long process where many people have participated: the partners of the project, the associations and communities fallaires, the town halls of the villages, the researchers of the festivities . . .

The realization of the project has mobilized more than a hundred people among experts in anthropology and museology, specialists in didactics, journalists, artists, photographers, cameras, video makers, draftsmen, computer scientists, web designers, translators, … In many villages we have interviewed people who have explained their knowledge, their feelings, their concerns. Thank you all very much!

In the following videos the members of the team explain their participation in the project and how it has been carried out. In the bibliographic references you will be able to know more about the philosophy and challenges of this virtual museum.
