The Hungarian Heritage House is a national institute with the purpose of preserving and promoting Hungarian folk tradition. Its mission among others is raising awareness of Hungarian folk traditions and maintaining the interest in it as well as promoting the intangible cultural heritage of the Carpathian Basin in Hungary and abroad.The aim of the Travel, experience, teach! project is to enlarge and strengthen the organizations international network of relations. We plan long term cooperation with Hungarian institutions abroad as well as with other European institutions that have a profile similar to that of the Hungarian Heritage House, hoping that in the future strategic partnerships will emerge. Priority will be given to adult education as well as to the exchange of best practices on the current applications of folk traditions (adaptation of each other’s best practices – international promotion of local good practices).Nine colleagues of the Applied Folk Arts Department of the Hungarian Heritage House will participate in the project. They all are highly specialized professionals, and most of them are involved in our adult education activities. External professionals such as craftsmen, folk musicians, who are lecturers of our adult education trainings and programmes will also be involved in the project.During the 12-month project all together seven mobilities are planned: five job shadowings, one course and one trainings. The project will be implemented with the particitation of seven partners in five countries (UK, Latvia, Denmark, Italy and Romania).As a result of job shadowings the Hungarian Heritage House will take significant steps towards internationalization. During job shadowing activities we will get acquainted with foreign best practices, during study tours the knowledge of our trainers will be widened, English courses will improve the foreign-language competences of our colleagues while the trainer mobilities will improve the long term operation of the host institutes. A long term effect is expected in the case of the project with the Bethesda Children’s Home and Diaspora School Center (RO), we believe that the quality of the educators’ pedagogical work will be improved. The output of the project will also be the improvement of the different competencies of the Hungarian Heritage House’s colleagues. Apart from the mobilites directly aimed at competency-building (language courses) other types of mobilities will also improve communicational and social competencies, increase independency and proactivity as well as develop efficient and flexible problem solving skills of the participants through informal learning.
