Working on a new constitution

Over the year 2007, a workgroup counting 4 members of EXARC prepared a new constitution. Over 2008, this has been discussed in great detail by the board - the results of which are planned to be put in place in 2009. Not only will EXARC have a stronger constitution, some changes will also be made, like opening EXARC up to individual membership. The new constitution has been brought in tune with ICOM regulations and the ICOM code of ethics. For 2009, the board also prepared a framework of plans and a budget to go with it. Part of that is a strategy to meet some of ICOM's requirements. All this is open for discussion at our coming Annual General Meeting in Italy, March 28.

Acting out living history should not involve propagating of or flirting with political ideas...

In EXARC’s opinion, acting out living history should not involve propagating of or flirting with political ideas, especially if these ideas refer to National Socialistic philosophy. EXARC is worried about examples like the German living history group Ulfhednar, who are internationally active. There are several groups with an almost similar name, but this is not about them. Already for a long time, Ulfhednar has stood out for their heavy use of symbols, which are else known from the Nazi Era of the 3rd Reich...

Marketing & Communication workshop in Norway

From the beginning, Norway had some suggestions to how to proceed, based on experience from other EU projects. The proposal was to strengthen each partners marketing, and create a marketing strategy for the project. This theme has also much to do with the Scottish theme of the dialogue with visitors. Acquiring information about visitors can be vital for marketing, and strategic communication...
