Apr 20 - 2022
We invite all interested students of the field of architecture, civil engineering, cultural heritage, arts and other related fields to apply for the “Heritage Lab” Workshop
DATES: 10 – 19 MAY, 2022
HERITAGE LAB is an educational project organized by CHwB Kosovo aiming to create new opportunities for students of architecture, cultural heritage and other related fields to learn about methods of documentation, preservation, revival and interpretation of cultural heritage through “hands on” practical work and complementary lectures. HERITAGE LAB is an activity developed “in situ”, so that the problems of a heritage site are surveyed directly and the solutions for its treatment, interpretation and management are given at the same time.
From 10 to 19 May 2022, CHwB Kosova in partnership with Shtatëmbëdhjetë (17) is organizing a Restoration Camp at Hivzi Sulejmani House in Prishtina, where around 20 students and new professionals will learn the techniques of restoring old furniture and reuse them for the new artists' residence.
This workshop is implemented by CHwB Kosovo in partnership with Shtatëmbëdhjetë (17) and is financed by Embassy of Sweden through SIDA.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE SITE
Built in the early twentieth century, the house of the famous writer Hivzi Sulejmani is located in the Taslixhe neighborhood in Prishtina. Suljemnai retired from public life early at the age of 53 and lived a secluded life at his home on the outskirts of Pristina for the rest of his life. In 1975, before he died, he gave his property to the Municipality of Prishtina to be used as a children's library. There he wrote his latest story "A leaf and a man".
