The CeRamICa project, financed by the European Territorial Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVC, aims
to preserve and revitalize ceramics & traditional small crafts, which are significant elements of our common European
heritage. Our wide partnership, 12 local and regional governments and public institutions, from 9 European
countries offering a perfect balance between Eastern and Western societies and traditions, has been working since
2009 on finding effective solutions and tools that can help creative industries, ceramics and small crafts become real
economic driving forces in their respective local and regional economies by sharing and exchanging knowledge &
experiences among them.
On 6th & 7th April 2011, our project, currently in its final stretch, will hold in its partner city Alcobaça, in
partnership wishes to disseminate the results achieved during the three years of cooperation as well as to share and
debate in public panels the policy recommendations and the good practices that could be referenced by similar
projects. A European Press Conference will be held on Wednesday, 6th April, 12.30 am.
Alongside with the Open Conference, our event will inaugurate an interactive exhibition on ceramics &
