WAAT platform



We are happy to share that our platform is gradually filling up with videos about cultural heritage. However, we and our local stakeholder are currently working/creating them, as we are still trying to test and find out the latest nuances of our "WAAT guide for educators", which will soon be available to you. So you can confidently create films and use not only the guide but also this platform. Non-formal adult education comes to help preserve cultural heritage, and we are happy to be big part of it.

Please check our platform, but have in mind it is not finished yet.




WAAT filming

Filming of digital stories on heritage

 We are currently filming digital stories in all WAAT partner countries for our main target group adult educators and learners, be it about tangible, intangible, digital or natural heritage.

In Austria we have already filmed three short videos, the first one at Eggenberg Palace in Graz, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We went through the 24 rooms of the palace that, as a peculiarity, have remained almost unchanged since the 18th century. Furthermore, filming took place at the Styrian Centre for Folk Music, where we recorded Austrian folk songs. The third location for filming was the Southern Styria Nature Park, a lovely area with picturesque vinyards displayed in lovely autumn colours.
