Campaign description

Continues and strengthens the collaboration with Living Culture Fundation Namibia (www.lcfn.info) in supporting the local traditions. In the month of March were opened three new Living Museum.

Damara Living Museum

On February 20 was inaugurated the Damara Living Museum, located few kilometers from the archaeological site of Twyfelfontein (declared World Heritage by UNESCO). We expect a significant response from the international tourism. SCINTILLE was involved in logistics management at its inauguration.

Living Hunter’s Museum of the Ju/’Hoansi-San

On February 27 was inaugurated the Living Hunter’s Museum of the Ju / ‘Hoansi-San, located at //Xa/ oba, halfway between Tsumkwe and Kaudom National Park (near the border with Botswana). Again SCINTILLE took part in its creation from the initial stages of the project (october 2009) and continues to support its evolution. On the day of the opening Scintille organized the presence of 14 children from the Orphanage ‘Casa Angelo’ of Mangetti Dune: needless to say that direct contact with their traditions has been extremely interesting for them. With Dr. Melitta Bosshart we decided to organize in the future a full day at the Living Museum entirely dedicated to the children.

Cooperation between Scintille & LFCN is going on

Scintille continues its collaboration with the friends of LCFN (Living Culture Foundation Namibia) in Namibia, the foundation that focuses exclusively on the development of the Living Museums and the preservation of traditional cultures. So we’ve jointly developed a brochure that not only explain the concept of the ‘Living Museum’, but gives indications about the characteristics of the five existing Living Museum as well as information on how to reach them.

Scintille has funded the creation and printing of 5000 copies of the brochure.

The new Mbunza Living Museum was inaugurated on October 22 by LCFN Namibia. This new project was developed together with the local community of Kavango, about 20 km from Rundu, on the left bank of the Okawango River. SCINTILLE, continuing his collaboration with LCFN, donated the billboard showing the way to the new Living Museum.
