The main goal of the project is to convert the photographic assets of the photography pioneers from the XIX century (concerning the time period between 1839 and 1939) into a relevant landmark of the cultural heritage of the Atlantic Area in order to generate economic impact and create new jobs at local and regional levels.
In order to achieve this, the project aims to:
• Develop joint actions to preserve the Atlantic Area cultural heritage in the field of photography
• Develop cultural activities and events
• Develop cultural tourism and creative industries
• Develop marketing and promotion strategies for cultural tourism activities
• Improve Information and Communication Technologies and Digital Skills to promote accessible online content on the area of photography
• Value the existing cultural and sustainable heritage tourist attractions
• Develop joint initiatives to promote a transnational identity of the Atlantic cultural heritage to attract tourism, develop the economy and create jobs
