Public Training Seminar on the Dissemination of Norwegian and Lithuanian Experience in the Preservation of Cultural Heritage

A seminar intended for everyone interested in the issues of the cultural heritage preservation and restoration will be held on 12–13 November 2014. It is expected that the seminar would be of particular use for the owners and managers of manor houses and other immovable heritage of Lithuania.

The event forms part of the project "Conservation of Liubavas Manor Officine and Orangery and Its Adaptation to Cultural and Public Needs" which is financed under the „Conservation and Revitalisation of Cultural and Natural Heritage" Programme of the EEA Financial Mechanism.

The aim of the seminar is to present, with the help of Norwegian and Lithuanian experts, the peculiar features of the traditional manor house architecture of the 17th and 18th centuries. Dr. Lars Jacob Hvinden-Haug, an expert from the Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research (NIKU), will overview the orangeries of the 17th and 18th centuries and the Liubavas Manor ensemble in the context of European architecture. Another NIKU expert Susanne Kaun will present investigations into the polychromy of Norwegian building walls as well as the experience of their preservation. NIKU is the country's largest research institution in the area of cultural heritage, with its specialists invited for the restoration of cultural heritage objects in Europe and other parts of the world.

A well-known Lithuanian researcher Dr. Dalė Puodžiukienė will present features of traditional Lithuanian manor house architecture of the 17th and 18th centuries, covering manor houses of noblemen rather than kings and magnates. Robertas Zilinskas, a prominent researcher of Lithuanian architecture, will speak about the architectural and polychromic investigations into the officine and the orangery of Liubavas Manor within a wider context of investigations into the 17th and 18th century buildings.

Participants in the seminar will be invited to take part in discussions, using a unique opportunity to put questions to the experts from the Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research and the Lithuanian researchers with many years' experience in the preservation of cultural heritage.

The seminar will take place in Europos parkas Education Centre. A visit to Liubavas Manor will be organised so that the participants in the seminar will have an opportunity to familiarise themselves with objects under restoration (the officine and the orangery) as well with those already restored and open to the public (the watermill museum). Discussions on the subject of heritage preservation will be held.

The seminar is free of charge. The number of participants is limited, therefore, please kindly register in advance by writing to gk@europosparkas.lt

People will also be taken to the place of seminar by coach. The coach will leave at 9:00 AM from Forum Palace car parking lot at Upės Street.
