The exhibition Water in Arts and Crafts in the Berat Region, 4th century B.C. to 19th century A.D., whose catalogue is the outcome of ten years of deliberations and consultations on the state of national museums in Albania. At the heart of it all was a relentless quest to discover what can be done to transform these museums from static organizations into dynamic, interactive institutions.
The overall objective of the catalogue is, essentially, to create an experience of how water is linked with the culture and history of the communities of the City of Berat and its regions. Although Berat is not itself a port city, its relationship with water, including the sea, is multi-faceted. To accommodate the viewing of water from a multitude of perspectives, the exhibition was given a modular character. The first section views water as a natural element and its rapport with human beings as represented in the arts and crafts of the Berat region from the 4th century B.C. to the 19th century A.D. The second section departs from water as natural element and investigates it as a miracle-working element. The third and last section of the exhibition studies water as a sacramental element.
The project also included specialized training for elementary school teacher in the Berat region,
which advance teaching practices and methods that would familiarize kid with the ideas of museums and the importance of cultural heritage, by stimulating the drive for exploration and learning. Thus creating a more aware generation towards the importance of cultural heritage
