Morsø Municipality (DK)
Morsø municipality builds further on the cultural heritage as a fishing community, in particular the (native European flat) oyster and mussel fishery. The Danish Shellfish Center resides here with researchers from DLU. The shellfish industry has been a key driver in the local economy; the municipality and others worked hard to reignite the pride & excitement around fishery, through an Oyster Premiere in October, a Shellfish festival in June as culture is promoted in the Kulturmøde each August.
Role in CUPIDO
Morsø and its co-beneficiary Kulturmødet will share experiences and local expertise in the use of local and regional platforms for the promotion of culture. It concerns f.ex. cooperation with neighbouring municipalities on findings from the Neolithic era or a stone age centre, but also cooperation with local education institutions, or with research from Aalborg University involving researchers and students. Morsø’s relationships and expertise will be made available for the CUPIDO partnership.
