The Video Channel from the old fishermen from Chengene Skele, near Burgas, launch their first seven online lessons. They are available on the largest video sharing network Youtube.
The video lessons were created within the project "Old fishermen looking for online apprentices" under the Cultural Heritage Program - sub-program "Intangible Cultural Heritage", which is part of the Bulgarian National Culture Fund. For a period of one year, the project was realized as a result of the successful partnership between the Regional historical museum of Burgas and the NGO "Morski sgovor". The aim was to connect two very different worlds - the vast expanse of the sea with the global information network to allow the popularization of fishing practices from the Bulgarian Black Sea coast.
After filming and processing, a digital repository was also organized as a part of the museum website for virtual presentation of fisheries related items - fishing tackle, nets, harrows, antique anchors, net weights and photographs from the recent past.
The Burgas Museum and NGO "Morski sgovor" continue the campaign to attract new materials for the virtual exhibition - photos and recordings of fishermen, objects and stories.
From the video channel "Old Fishermen looking for online apprentices", you'll learn what is uzukma and mermetosvane, which one is the appropriate net for catching turbot, bluefish and jack mackerel. To expand its content, the fishermen hope everyone will capture their own video and send it. Playlist option have been given the ability to easily add and share videos from different authors and subtopics.
