Fishing Communities' Heritage

curated by:

Fishing traditions are an important part of the cultural identity of coastal communities, but current challenges threaten those traditional roots. This photo exhibition aims to visualize the richness, variety and importance of the cultural heritage in European fishing communities.
The pictures were compiled within the framework of a photo competition organized by the Interreg Europe project CHERISH (Creating opportunities for regional growth through promoting Cultural HERitage of fISHing communities in Europe). The aim of the competition „Fishing Communities’ Heritage“ was to use the power of photography to raise awareness about the importance of fishing traditions as a key element of the long history of coastal settlements around Europe. The displayed photos include traditional celebrations, fishermen at work, boats and fishery tools and give a truthful impression of fishing heritage. All in all the competition attracted over 300 pictures from eight of the CHERISH partner regions:
Region of Eastern Macedonia & Thrace (Greece),
Alto Minho Coastal Area (Litoral Norte) (Portugal),
Mallorca Island (Spain),
Riga Planning Region coastal area (Latvia),
Coastal area of Abruzzo Region (Italy),
Cyprus (Cyprus),
Zeeland Province (The Netherlands),
Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (Germany).

You are welcome to discover the richness, variety and importance of the cultural heritage in European fishing communities!
