Photos from weddings and other celebrations of Bulgarians in Taraclia made in the first half of the 20th century will be restored. The photos are owned by the Cultural Heritage Museum in Taraclia and will be renovated within a project of the mayoralty under the Museum of the Future programme. The financial resources will cover the restorer's work, who is a partner of the programme and will choose the quantity of the photos themselves.
Cultural Heritage Museum Director Tatiana Nekit said that for the museum workers it is very important to preserve the photos in good condition, because only in them can people see the traditional clothing of their ancestors for various events.
The Museum of the Future programme aims to increase the visibility of cultural institutions by supporting them in integrating innovations and modernizing their spaces. Technologies are a catalyst of traditional sectors, such as tourism, culture, and history, as well as an instrument for revealing identity and the past; they help museums attract more visitors, who can study culture through digital instruments.
Nine teams comprising artists, restorers, and professionals from the creative industry got the approval of the jury and the necessary financial support to implement their projects under the programme. The winners receive a total of EUR 200,000 to make their creative concepts a reality. Registered for the programme are nine wineries, 23 museums from across Moldova, 100 artists and creative industry professionals.
