From 13-16 July, ASTRA Museum is organising the 8th edition of the ASTRA Multicultural event. This project continues with the theme "Memory, integration, adaptability", as in the previous edition. During the 4 days of the programme, ASTRA Multicultural will organise: a festival of traditional multi-ethnic music and dances, interactive workshops aimed at placing craftsmen in a market of quality, authentic and representative products, a multi-ethnic gastronomic marathon, presenting the adaptability of food to each season and situation in the life of the community - a model to be adapted in contemporary times to reduce food waste and reuse for other purposes. More than 200 artists and folk craftsmen from Romania, the Republic of Moldova, as well as representatives of the Hungarian, Saxon, Lipovans, Ukrainian, țipțeri and Roma communities will participate in the 8th edition of ASTRA Multicultural.
The ASTRA Multicultural programme also includes the seminar "ASTRA Multicultural - Cultural Heritage. Value. National and international perspectives". The seminar will take place in the Open-Air museum in Dumbrava Sibiului, Multicultural Museum Pavilion and will bring together 50 ethnologists, sociologists, anthropologists, specialists, from museums, research institutes and universities who will engage in discussions on research, conservation, protection and enhancement of traditional culture and crafts from home and abroad.
