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

Izvještaj: Radionica “Suhozidni mentori Zadarske županije”

Mjesto i vrijeme: NP Paklenica,  28. i 29. veljače 2020

Tekst i slike: Miran Križanić

Udruga Dragodid u suradnji s domaćinom Planinarskim društvom Paklenica organizirala je dvodnevnu suhozidnu radionicu za 20 volontera s jednim suhozidnim mentorom.

Mentor na ovoj radionici bio je Nikola Tesla iz Starigrada – stalni član planinarskog društva, aktivni suhozidar i sudionik radnih akcija obnova planinarskih skloništa.

Radionica je prvenstveno bila zamišljena kao suhozidna edukacija za članove planinarskog društva i ostalih zainteresiranih planinara koji su stalni posjetioci planina i pl. puteva te kao takvi često sudjeluju u uređenju staza i skloništa.

Akcija se odvila kod planinarskog doma Paklenica. U sklopu radionice obnovljena je i terenu prilagođena suhozidna terasa u neposrednoj blizini doma. Podzid terase vrta je 10-ak metara dug, a visina mu varira. Korišteno je već zatečeno kamenje iz neposrednog okoliša, specifičnog za kanjon Paklenice i krške oblike koji u blizini vodotoka prevladavaju uslijed intenzivnog rada vode.

Najava: Majstorska radionica suhozidne gradnje

Rijeka 2020 – Luka različitosti u suradnji sa Sveučilištem u Rijeci i umjetnikom Darkom Fritzom organizira majstorsku radionicu suhozidne gradnje. Radionicu vodimo mi, a poziv prenosimo u cijelosti:

mrsg

“Izgradnja suhozida vrlo je slična izgradnji odnosa u društvenoj zajednici. Kao što je svaki čovjek u zajednici jednako važan i vrijedan, tako je i svaki kamen pri izgradnji suhozida jednako važan i vrijedan, nebi li ta građevina opstala. Onaj mali jednako je važan kao onaj veliki, onaj u sredini jednako je važan kao onaj na vrhu, ali i onaj na dnu. Svaka je jedinka važna za cijeloviti opstanak, bila ona kamen u suhozidu ili osoba u društvu.”  Andro Nigoević, udruga “4 grada Dragodid”

Pozivamo sve zainteresirane na majstorsku radionicu izrade suhozida pod vodstvom mentora iz udruge “4 grada Dragodid”, koja će se održati od 24. veljače do 1. ožujka 2020., svakodnevno od 10 do 17 sati na lokaciji: Sveučilišni Kampus Rijeka, Radmile Matejčić 3 (teren pored Građevinskog fakulteta). Tehnika gradnje suhozida predstavlja nematerijalno kulturno dobro Republike Hrvatske, 2018. godine uvrštena na UNESCO-vu listu nematerijalne baštine čovječanstva. Radionica se provodi u sklopu programskog pravca 27 susjedstava Rijeka 2020 i projekta “I am not a robot” umjetnika Darka Fritza. Cilj radionice je osposobljavanje polaznika radionice o suhozidnoj gradnji na primjeru izvedbe umjetničkog rada.
Radionica je besplatna. Za sve sudionike radionice osiguran je alat, zaštitne rukavice i topli obrok. Za sudjelovanje je potrebna čvrsta obuća, radna odjeća i obavezna prijava po danima. Radionice svakodnevno započinju kratkim uvodnim predavanjem i uputama.

Prijave: Za prijavu na radionicu molimo obratiti se na e-mail: maja.pratengrazer@rijeka2020.eu ili na broj telefona: 091 61 26 319
Prijaviti se možete za svih sedam dana radionice, ili za pojedinačne dane, sukladno vlastitim mogućnostima. U sklopu prijave potrebno je istaknuti jedan ili više dana za koje se prijavljujete.

Susjedstvo Sveučilišni Kampus – jedno je od 27 susjedstava projekta Rijeka 2020 – Europska prijestolnica kulture.

Darko Fritz – Umjetnik, istraživač, kustos suvremene i medijske umjetnosti, grafički dizajner i oblikovatelj izložbi. Studirao je arhitekturu na Sveučilištu u Zagrebu [1986 – 1989] i vizualnu umjetnost na Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten u Amsterdamu [1990. – 1992.]. U svom umjetničkom radu koristi razne medije – kritički prateći razvoj tehnologije (od 1988. koristi video) koja mijenja društvo, no ostvaruje i niz projekata u netipičnim medijima i u javnom prostoru, kao što su regulacija tramvajskog prometa i hortikulturalne instalacije. Preuzima gotove medijske sadržaje, primjerice obavijesti o serverskoj grešci na internetu (Internet koristi kao umjetnički medij od 1994.), koje transponira u druge medije, organske ili nisko i visokotehnološke.
