Diazoma Association presents – “The Value and the Magic of Synergies” in the preservation of cultural heritage
On December 5, 2019 Evdokimos Fregoglou, project manager of the Diazoma Association, gave a presentation on “The Value and the Magic of Synergies” at the Triangular Tower of Serdica event hall in Sofia, Bulgaria. He discussed how Diazoma’s projects became a successful example of interaction between the non-Governmental and state sectors for the benefit of the preservation and promotion of the archaeological cultural heritage of Greece. The event was organized by the Balkan Heritage Foundation and attended by His Excellency the Greek Ambassador in Bulgaria, Dimitris Chronopoulos.
In 2008, the Citizens’ Movement Diazoma was established in order to contribute to the protection and promotion of ancient places of performance (theatres, odeia, stadiums, amphitheatres), as well as to raise awareness within the relevant institutions and society. In recent years, the fundamental principal of the Association has been the integration of the monuments into modern life and their connection to sustainability and sustainable development. In this context, and making use of the results of the synergy among all relevant partners, Diazoma is planning and proposing the implementation of new programs such as Cultural –Environmental Routes and Archaeological Parks.
The guest speaker, Evdokimos Fregoglou, holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Cultural Informatics and a Postgraduate degree in 3D Design. At Diazoma, he plans holistic cultural tourism programs in collaboration with the relevant ministries, municipalities and civil society, with the aim of bringing the monuments to the center of everyday life, economy and sustainable development. Currently, he coordinates a special team that aims to support, on behalf of Diazoma, the Destination Management/ Marketing Organizations (DMO) which are responsible for the governance of the Cultural Routes and the Archaeological Parks across Greece.
The Balkan Heritage Foundation shares the vision of the Diazoma Association for creating synergies in benefit of the cultural heritage in Southeastern Europe.
