HIGHRES - Helping IntanGible Heritage REsilience through Storytelling

In rural and remote areas, there is a need for solutions that improve socio-economic conditions, particularly in bridging the digital gap between rural and urban areas. At the same time, the preservation of intangible cultural heritage requires community involvement and commitment to keep the traditions alive and safeguard our cultural legacy.

Digital storytelling presents a significant opportunity to leverage the power of telling stories in the preservation of intangible cultural heritage, while addressing the shift towards digital education.


The HIGHRES project aims to demonstrate how non-formal training tailored to the adult population, along with tools such as digital storytelling, can contribute to:

  • Safeguarding, interpreting and communicating Europe’s intangible cultural heritage;
  • Promoting rural development through cultural tourism;
  • Improving the digital skills of the adult population, thus ensuring a lasting impact on rural communities.
