Board of Trustees of Austrian Heimatwerk

Together for costume, handicraft and tradition

The Heimatwerks in the counties are stand-alone organisations. The umbrella organisation, the non-profit "Board of Trustees of Austrian Heimatwerk” which was founded in 1952, serves as an exchange of interests between the individual Heimatwerks and for the protection of the common trademark of "Heimatwerk". The Board of Trustees develops projects for the implementation of common non-commercial, cultural and socio-political objectives. These include promoting and supporting folk culture and everyday cultural statements, with particular attention on material and immaterial goods.

Active Europe-wide

The Board of Trustees of Austrian Heimatwerk is a member of the Association of European Heimatwerks, which was founded in 1972. This operates as a network of Heimatwerk similar institutions throughout Europe and provides a platform for mutual exchange.
