Universita degli Studi del Molise
The partnership is made up of 10
countries and 13 Institutions comprising of people representing Museums,
Teacher-training and Research centres, Universities Colleges and schools.
There are also a large number of Associated members who have already
worked with us and are keen to be involved in this project.
Aims :- to
create a Virtual Museum where the
contributions of the ten participating countries are organised within wide
thematic areas all relating to cultural heritage and called
Thematic Pavilions. It is accessible via the
Internet and will encourage young people to closely examine, protect and
value their own and other peoples culture. A special section within each
pavilion is the Virtual Library where all
Socrates projects already finished or underway can be disseminated to a
wider audience. Comenius projects generate an
enormous amount of material invaluable to students and educators. The
Webrary in each pavilion is an invitation to document, preserve and
act as an E- resource centre to future Comenius participants.
This Website has been devised and
realised by Tom Gallivan a graduate of the Crawford Municipal College of
Art, Cork. He is a teacher of Art Craft Design in the Killorglin Community
College, in Co. Kerry.
This web site should be of particular
interest to Primary and Secondary level students who are studying the Art
and Crafts of Ireland. The information contained in this site is NOT
intended to be exhaustive but serves as an introduction.
Contributions to the subject matter is and will be ongoing for the
duration of the project and already Thematic links have been identified by
the other partners.
