4 GRADA DRAGODID Association – YEAR 2013 ACTIVITY REPORT

Past year has seen the continued growth in the both number and ambition of our activities. It is therefore a pleasure for us to present you with this public report about our achievements in 2013.

Thanks to the implementation of our “franchise model” of working with local partners, this has been a record year in terms of number of workshops realized. As an advisor to our local partners we have helped organize and lead 13 workshops on various dry stone sites along the length of Croatian coast. Additionally, our International dry stone workshop in Petrebišća, of which we are sole organizers, has continued to be an educational success, with highly motivated participants and a program of practical work and lectures that was most ambitious up to now.


Act of registration of Dry-stone construction skills as an intangible cultural asset

Among the most important achievements we have to highlight our successful initiative to the Croatian Ministry of Culture, which has resulted in awarding of “Dry-stone construction skills” with protected status of an “Intangible cultural asset of national importance”. In addition to initiating this process trough the formal application, we took a leading advisory role in drafting of the registration documents and protection measures.  The protected status has been granted for initial period of three years, which will be used for the evaluation of protection measures and the scope of registration so that adjustments can be made for the permanent registration that is to follow.

“Gradimo u kamenu” dry-stone manual, second edition

In 2013 we have continued our cooperation with Slobodna Dalmacija – one of the largest daily newspaper publishers in Croatia, which printed the second edition of our dry-stone construction and heritage field manual “Gradimo u kamenu”. Second edition (like the first) was printed in 4000 copies which is very substantial print run for Croatian standards. It was nationally distributed trough newspaper stands and sold out within two months. As a part of our contract with the publisher we have kept a a part of the print run which we distribute and provide to the participants of our workshops as course literature. Currently we are working to translate this publication into English so with plans to offer an electronic edition as a free resource on our website.

SUHOZID.HR WebGIS interface
Dragodid.org announcement
Announcement published in scientific journal Prostor
Announcement on Connect portal for science and education 

In April, we were proud to announce the operational status of our newest project: Suhozid.hr – an online public inventory of dry-stone structures and landscapes. This project is founded on open source GIS (Geographic Information System) technology and uses the principle of “crowdsourcing” to enlist help of the public in inventorying dry-stone heritage. Internet users can browse existing entries trough the cartographic user interface on the project website and place new ones on the map with pictures and description. An entry form has also been developed for the Android smartphones, which enables users to ad entries from the field, taking pictures with the phone camera with phone GPS used to automatically pinpoint their position on the map. There are already several hundred entries in the inventory and we are looking to attract more enthusiast users with a system of recognitions (eg. “Contributor of the month”, or “Featured entry”).

The inventory is meant to serve as database of localities for our dry-stone research and workshops, and also as an important resource for spatial planning and heritage protection. The project is supported by University of Zagreb, University of Zadar, Conservatory Department in Split. Preliminary research was financed by University of Zagreb Students’ Association and Croatian Academy of Science and Arts Trust.

————————————————————-

Among other achievements, we would like to highlight the participation of 4 GRADA DRAGODID in “Mediterranean Consortium for Nature and Culture”, a project funded by MAVA foundation, which aims to integrate natural and cultural heritage protection in the Mediterranean. Our representatives have participated in two consortium meetings in Albania and Spain, helping draft plans for its future activities. Also worth noting is our exhibition at EXPONATEC, the largest European professional fair for conservation, museums and heritage, were we exhibited as a part of The Best in Heritage stand. Our exhibition was visited by several hundred heritage professionals from various parts of Europe, and we established several meaningful contacts which will hopefully lead to collaboration on common projects.

————————————————————-

We have achieved a record (but still very modest) yearly budget of 110 754 HRK (around 14 700 €). Considerable part of it was acquired trough paid engagements (e.g. workshops organized for various institutions managing national and nature parks and publishing rights for the publication of our manual).  Our single biggest donor was Croatian Ministry of Culture with total of 22 600 kn  followed by 1000 £ from Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts. Although this was our biggest annual budget up to now we feel it is inadequate for the full scope of our activities, which were mostly realized trough generous volunteer effort of the association members. With current financial means we are chronically under-capacitated, especially when it comes to the matters of administration. Our goal remains to find funds to hire a capable administrator and run a basic office.

What follows is a short description of most of the workshops we have been a part of last year:


Dry-stone workshop Takala 2013

This was a second year that we were guests of the Dolčina agricultural association from Praputnjak in the amazing locality of Takala, part of “Bakarski prezidi” vineyard terraces, a listed heritage site. We continued te work of repairing the parts of dry-stone terraces which have eroded trough the work of weather or vegetation roots, in an effort to help Dolčina association’s programme of reviving the wine production on the site. In two days of the workshop we were joined by about 40 local participants and enthusiasts and we fixed six eroded stretches of terraces.

International workshop in Petrebišća is the central event of our workshop calendar. It is situated in the abandoned seasonal mountain settlement in which all structures were built with dry stone. Workshop concept is directed towards students, professionals and activists from various heritage fields and program is composed from both practical work and theoretical lectures. International component is provided by our collaboration with French heritage volunteer network REMPART which has included this workshop in their yearly event calendar. This was the 4th consecutive year that Petrebišća workshop is taking place with 34 participants attending.

This year’s subject was quarrying of stone and procurement of construction wood from the surrounding area. We have reactivated the stone quarry which was traditionally used in construction of the houses in the village and extracted 8 tons of stone slates that will be used as a roof covering in further reconstruction of the Petrebišća site. This work was done with the instruction and supervision of the experienced traditional stone craftsman from the local area. Techniques and tools used in this work have been documented and will be used in our future workshops and publications. We have also cut down 12 pine trees and crafted them into beams that will be used as roof construction.

Workshop had a program of 10 lectures dealing either with general dry-stone subjects or the heritage of the surrounding area:

  • Memories of life in villages of Potoška vala, Vinko Škalamera, Čakavian chair of Mošćenička Draga
  • Ancient human traces on the east side of Učka mountain, Mario Zaccaria, Archeologist

Back to Vrdovo – Dinara Back to Life

Tekst i Foto : Oleg Miklić

U sklopu projekta Dinara Back to Life, u organizaciji BIOM-a i LAG-a Cetinska Krajina, u suradnji sa Planinarskim Društvom Sveti Jakov i nama, udrugom Dragodid, 23. i 24. rujna održana je druga radionica obnove suhozida na Vrdovu na Dinari. Planinarska Kuća Sveti Jakov na 1001 mnv je bila baza radionice, gdje smo se okupili u petak u popodnevnim satima. U najvećem broju došli su učenice i učenici iz Gimnazije Dinka Šimunovića u Sinju. U neposrednoj blizini Planinarske Kuće nalazi se suhozid koji je bio cilj naše akcije.

01
Slika 1 – Uvod

02
Slika 2 – Zid i Kuća

Zid je bio u jako lošem stanju, jer nije korišten preko pola stoljeća, na dijelovima je zarastao u vegetaciju, puno kamena je popadalo, neko je već i prekrila zemlja, a škalja se je isprala. Ali zid je i zanimljiv, jer se sastoji i od jednostrukog zida – unjula i od dvostrukog – duplice, na dijelovima čak i podzida. Krenuli smo sa čišćenjem nestabilnog dijela unjula i njegovom obnovom. Unjulo je „lakši“ i brži za gradnju, pa smo u kratkom vremenu podigli zid na prosječnu visinu od pola metra u dužini od 10ak metara. Nakon toga vratili smo se unatrag po izgrađenom unjulu, da vidimo princip gradnje duplice, dok je manji dio ekipe nastavio slagati unjulo.

03
Slika 3 – Samo Jako

04
Slika 4 – Poskok

Jedna i druga ekipa su napredovale brzo, zid je bio nizak i materijala nije bilo previše. Ali do sumraka uspjeli smo složiti 40ak metar zida! Dvije okomito orijentirane ploče su postavljene kao ulaz/izlaz.

05
Slika 5 – Intro

06
Slika 6 – Outro

Drugi dan je počeo relativno rano, ali kako se sunce dizalo i jače grijalo, dizala se i radna temperatura i iz minute u minutu obnovljeni zid je rastao u dužini. Podijelili smo se u grupice od par ljudi od kojih je prva čistila vegetaciju i rasuti zid, druga temeljila, treća slagala red-dva, te četvrta slagala zadnje redove. Suhozid na traci!

Nakon dobrog posla, dobra marenda! Sinjski arambaši! Pratite nas za više recepata!

10
Slika 10 – Dobar Tek!

Motivirani odličnom hranom nastavljamo u istom tempu. Sve smo brži i sve bolje radimo, već imamo skoro 100tinjak metar zida iza nas! Nailazimo i na podzid od red, dva, tri, bez puno zastoja rješavamo i par desetaka metara podzida! Dozvoljavamo si i uspješne eksperimente sa klupicom ispod drveta!

11
Slika 11 – Nema pauze

Imamo sve manje vremena za slikanje, ali i manje metara da se spojimo sa ekipom koja je sa druge strane radila unjulicu. Sabili smo redove, ima nas sve više na manjem prostoru i zid još brže napreduje! Traži se kamen viška! Traži se kanta škalje!

12
Slika 12 – Skoro 360

Zadnje zrake sunca su davno prestale grijati, u debelom smo sumraku, ali spojili smo zid! Predobar osjećaj! Ovom prilikom još jednom zahvaljujem i čestitam svim sudionicima radionice, i organizatorima i volonterima, jer je odrađen stvarno dobar posao! Kasnijim mjerenjem preko Google Earth-a izmjereno je 170 metara zida! Umorni i zadovoljni završavamo radionicu na kraćem druženju u Planinarskoj Kući.
Ne pokušavajte ovo kod kuće, samo na Vrdovu!

UNESCO WHV workshop Stari Grad Plain 2022 – izvještaj/report

Tekst: Filip Šrajer
Photo: Paweł Jaroszewski, Filip Bubalo (drone)

Praćena uobičajeno lijepim ranorujanskim vremenom, od 1. do 10.9.2022. u Starogradskom polju na otoku Hvaru održana je druga po redu volonterska suhozidna radionica, dio svjetskog programa World Heritage Volunteers – Volonteri za svjetsku baštinu.

Followed by the usually fair early September’s weather, second annual dry-stone volunteer workshop was held in Stari Grad Plain on Hvar island from 1st till 10th of September 2022, as a part of World Heritage Volunteers program

WHV - Volunteers for Stari Grad Plain / 2022

Starogradsko polje je od 2008. godine kao kulturni krajolik upisano na UNESCO-ov Popis svjetske baštine, a gomile, kako suhozide nazivaju na Hvaru, su u temelju njegovog fenomena, jer ne samo da se kroz njih ocrtava najbolje očuvana starogrčka parcelacija na svijetu, već predstavljaju i zaklon, ogradu i deponij viška kamena u najmanje 2400 godina staroj tradiciji uzgoja mediteranskih kultura na najvećem polju na jadranskim otocima. Kako se i umijeće suhozidne gradnje nalazi na UNESCO-ovom Reprezentativnom popisu nematerijalnih kulturnih dobara , može se reći da je ova radionica vrlo izravno spojila dva kulturna dobra zaštićena na najvišoj razini, i to krajolik, i umijeće koje je taj krajolik stvorilo.

Stari Grad Plain has been inscribed as a cultural landscape on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2008, and “gomile”, as they call the dry-stone walls on Hvar, are in the core of its phenomenon, not only because their layout makes the best preserved Ancient Greek land division in the world, but also because they represent the shelter, boundary and the depot of excess stone material in – at least – 2400 year old tradition of Mediterranean agriculture in Stari Grad Plain, the biggest field on the Adriatic islands. Since the art of dry-stone walling has been on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity since 2018, it can be said that this workshop brought closely together two cultural goods protected on the highest level: a landscape and an art (technique, skill, trade or however you put it) that created that landscape.  

defaultVolonteri su ove godine pristigli iz Poljske, Engleske, Makedonije i Hrvatske: Pawel, Jennifer, Kire, Laura, Filip, Nika i Xavier, 7 ljudi raznih dobi i struka, uglavnom mlađi od 30 godina, uglavnom bez ikakvog iskustva u suhozidnoj gradnji. Radionicu je vodio Filip Šrajer iz udruge 4 GRADA DRAGODID, domaćin Vinko Tarbušković, ravnatelj Agencije za upravljanje Starogradskim poljem vrijedno je radio s volonterima cijelo vrijeme radionice, a sličnu volontersko-organizatorsku ulogu imao je i Bruno Diklić, voditelj Odjela za graditeljsku baštinu i krajolik u Ministarstvu kulture i medija. Jedan, odnosno dva dana s nama su radili i Davor Trupković, glavni hrvatski konzervator, i Rut Carek, voditeljica Hrvatskog povjerenstva za UNESCO, ujedno i formalna organizatorica cijelog događaja, tako da je u jednom trenutku naša mala radionica nalikovala na team building važnih kulturnjaka.

This year, volunteers came from Poland, England, Macedonia and Croatia: Pawel, Jennifer, Kire, Laura, Filip, Nika and Xavier, 7 people of different age and profession, mostly under 30, mostly without any prior experience in dry-stone walling. Tutor was Filip Šrajer of 4 grada Dragodid association; Vinko Trbušković, director of Agency for Stari Grad Plain Management, and Bruno Diklić, Head of the Department for Architectural Heritage and Landscape in the Ministry of Culture, were working diligently with the volunteers all the time. One and two days respectively, we were accompanied by Davor Trupković, Croatian Chief Conservator, and Rut Carek, Head of Office / Secretary General of the Croatian Commission for UNESCO, also the main organizer of the event, so in one moment the workshop looked like a team building of Croatian cultural heritage administration VIP’s.  

WHV - Volunteers for Stari Grad Plain / 2022Od osam dana efektivnog trajanja događaja, pet dana bilo je posvećeno gradnji suhozida, jedan dan berbi grožđa a dva dana i još poneko popodne predavanjima i obilascima kulturne baštine i muzeja otoka Hvara. Bez obzira na dob i profesionalni status, u gradnji su svi pomagali jedni drugima i dijelili muku i radost rada s kamenom. Ukupno je iz temelja rekonstriorano 60 m niskog ogradnog suhozida uz glavnu cestu kroz Polje. Suhozid je građen uduplo, visine 50 i širine 50-70 cm (s obilježjima potrprnog zida, jer je cesta nešto viša od okolnih parcela). Prva dva dana zid je građen nešto šire, što je fizički zahtjevnije, ali manje zahtjevno glede vještine. Ukupnu količinu materijala voditelj je procijenio na 33 t, što znači da je svaki od sudionika preko svojih ruku i leđa u prosjeku prebacio oko 4 tone kamena! Sve u svemu je i kvalitetom i kvantitetom rezultat bio jako dobar za ljude koji dolaze iz gradova i većina ih se prvi put susrela s gradnjim suhozida.

Na kraju su svi bili dosta zadovoljni, na rastanku čak i pomalo sentimentalni, a neki su najavili prijavu na buduće suhozidne radionice. Vidimo se u Starogradskom polju sljedeće godine!

Out of eight workshop’s effective days, five days were dedicated to walling, one day to grape harvest, and two days and few more afternoons to lectures and visiting the Hvar’s cultural heritage sites and museums. Regardless of age and professional status, everyone helped each other and shared the pain and joy of working with stone. Sixty meters of the boundary wall along the main route through the field was completely restored. It was a 50 cm high and 50-70 cm wide double wall (with the elements of retaining wall, since the road is higher than the field). In the first two days, the wall was deliberately set a little bit wider, what is more demanding workwise but easier skillwise. Tutor estimated the total weight of embedded material to 33t, what means that every participant slung about 4t of stone in average. In the end, the result was very good, quantitatively and qualitatively, for the people of urban background with no prior experience in walling.

Everyone was pretty satisfied in the end, even a bit sentimental at the farewell, and some announced their application for the future stone workshop(s). See you on the Stari Grad Plain next year!

5. Prvenstvo Hrvatske u gradnji suhozida, u organizaciji udruge 4 Grada Dragodid, održat će se u subotu 8. listopada u Cresu. Pozivamo sve zainteresirane: one koji su se okušali u gradnji suhozida, ali i one koji to još nisu, a htjeli bi, da sastave ekipe i prijave se. Dobrodošle su ekipe iz cijele Hrvatske.

Prvenstvo je dio programa Suhozidnog susreta koji će započeti dan ranije, u petak, 7. listopada, a program će biti objavljen uskoro.

prvenstvo 2022 clanak

Okupljanje sudionika će biti u 10 sati u gradu nakon čega slijedi 15-minutna šetnja kroz stoljetne creske maslinike (malo o povijesti creskog maslinarstva) do lokacije Prvenstva. Lokacija je odabrana nakon što je pri širenju javnog puta srušen dvostruki suhozid s jedne strane puta koji će se tijekom Prvenstva ponovno podignuti.

Cilj je u zadanom vremenu (2h) od raspoloživog kamena izgraditi što kvalitetniji dvostruki suhozid/duplicu, unaprijed zadanih dimenzija (duljine, visine, dubine). Sve ekipe grade istovremeno, jedna do druge, svaka svoj segment zida. Vrednovat će se završenost segmenta, te kvaliteta zida.

Nakon gradnje slijedi zajednički ručak, žiriranje i proglašenje pobjednika.

Obnova urušenih podzida maslinika će uslijediti poslijepodne, nakon natjecateljskog dijela, ručka i kraćeg predaha, a mogu se priključiti svi zainteresirani sudionici.

Ekipu čini do 4 člana / članice starija od 16 godina.

Kotizacija po ekipi iznosi 200 kn i plaća se prilikom registracije na licu mjesta. Svi natjecatelji dobivaju majice te im je osigurano osvježenje i ručak, a pobjednička ekipa osim pehara dobiva i novčanu nagradu koja se pokriva iz kotizacija.

Prijave se šalju e-mailom na adresu info@dragodid.org do 20.9.2022. a trebaju sadržavati imena i adrese svih članova ekipe, te kontakt telefon i mail adresu najmanje jednog člana/članice ekipe. Broj ekipa je ograničen!

Projekt podupiru Ministarstvo kulture i medija, Grad Cres i Turistička zajednica Grada Cresa.
