Short description:

The Network of the Nordic-Baltic Tradition Archives (NBTA), first established at the end of 2014, introduced the productive links among the similar institutions in the Nordic and Baltic countries. The further development of the network will foster the closer cooperation, the joint initiatives and sharing the best practices between the tradition archives that hold vast and valuable testimonies of the richness of cultural traditions and everyday life within the region and beyond.

The Network is intended (1) to create a sustainable forum for discussions and exchange of information and specific knowledge across the tradition archives in the Nordic-Baltic region and beyond; (2) to carry out the joint initiatives in order to launch the cooperation in practice; to find solutions of relevant issues and to promote coherent development of the tradition archives, especially in terms of digitizing, (3) to maintain the close cooperation with pan-European and worldwide organisations dealing with the intangible cultural heritage, especially the materials of traditional culture.
