Two projects successfully completed

EXARC had two adult learning projects running for two years from August 1st 2010 onward. These projects, Didarchtik & Zeitgeist, were about adult education in archaeological open-air museums. EXARC was the Coordinator of Didarchtik, and took an advisable role in Zeitgeist.
Dozens of people from 14 EXARC members have visited each other extensively, taking a look in each other’s kitchen...

An online glossary in 10 languages

One wish of EXARC has come true: over the past two years 15 members have cooperated in two Grundtvig Learning Partnerships (Didarchtik and Zeitgeist) and as one of the results from that, we now have got an online glossary with words we often use and cannot find easily in dictionaries.

Our two Grundtvig Learning Partnerships got accepted

We are happy to announce, almost all partners of the application 'Zeitgeist' have been accepted by their respective national agencies. Unfortunately, our two Italian members were left out, probably because the number of Italian applicants in general was far more than in any other country. We are sorry to lose a good specialist and an experienced museum in this project, but will try other ways of cooperation with them...

Grundtvig preparation meeting

February 11th - 12th, 2010 Days before Carnival broke loose, 20 representatives of from about 14 members of EXARC met for two days in Oerlinghausen (near Bielefeld, Germany), the archaeological open-air museum where EXARC once had its first meeting. This seems like a large group, but when initially all EXARC members were asked if they were interested, no less than 25 had responded...

The potential of the Grundtvig

At a formal EU meeting in Amsterdam, EXARC understood the potential of the Grundtvig adult learning programme for its members. This EU cooperation programme is much smaller and more easy to implement than the larger Culture or Interreg projects are. Many members were interested and this subject will be followed up in 2010.
