Time span of the initiative:

Brief description of the initiative:

“Brotzeit" focuses on the cultural sustainability and the manifold agricultural and manual practices of the cultivation and processing of grains and the production of bread. One main goal of the project is the analysis, protection and documentation of local knowledge and practice related to the immaterial cultural heritage of “Lesachtal Bread”. The project is organized along with the HLW Hermagor, the Education Centre Lesachtal and local associations. The collaboration with the schools allows the intergenerational transfer of know-how and direct inclusion of students in traditional practices concerning bread. Living traditions change in quotidian action, integrating the new and the foreign, altering with living situations – these traditions are thereby shaped anew again and again. This dynamic process of transfer and application of local knowledge and practice, as well as the meaning of these living traditions for the local community, lies at the center of the research focus. The reflection of intergenerational encounters with local cultural heritage requires a manifold process of communication and interaction; it culminates in the individual and collective learning experiences of the participants. In order to treat the tradition of the “Lesachtal Bread” culture in a modern and future-oriented way, suitable means of communication and performance are being developed and realized in collaboration with local activists. Working on the project "BrotZeit" is an interdisciplinary team from areas such as sociology, education, history and landscape planning. The project itself is transdisciplinary – reaching beyond science – through its collaboration with schools, local community and various associations.


Objectives of the initiative:

  • Awareness of cultural heritage and landscape,
  • intergenerational dialogue,
  • sense of identity and continuity

Brief assessment of the initiative’s results:

The project idea comes from a ten year old student, the research question and the project design were formed from the different perspectives and interests of the involved partners. Data generation, evaluation und the transfer in products (performances as well as media products as an app, an animated movie…) takes place together
