Here is this project’s ambition: to make Faro a paradigm in the exploration of new educational approaches in the field of cultural heritage, while simultaneously create a digital memory for the younger generations of the Modernist Movement in the Municipality of Faro and the Algarve region.
MINECRAFT AND MODERNIST ARCHITECTURE IN FARO
MI.MOMO.FARO is an heritage education project that aims to recreate emblematic buildings of modernist architecture in the municipality of Faro on the Minecraft Education platform, by students in the 3rd cycle of basic education. With this project, we want to bring together students, teachers, architects and other experts in modernist architecture, as well as the inhabitants of the buildings, in the potential of this digital tool for exploring our cultural heritage.
The project is also in line with the spirit of the Faro Convention, a framework convention of the Council of Europe about the value of Cultural Heritage for Society, which stresses the importance of cultural heritage as an integral part of Human Rights and Democracy- This promotes a broader, interdisciplinary understanding of this concept and its relationship with society, by establishing rights and responsibilities vis-à-vis cultural heritage, a focus on the promotion of sustainability, access, and the use of digital technology in the context of heritage.
