Asset Education Program

It aims at the extraversion of knowledge about the Historical and Cultural Heritage of the region in the Brazilian archaeological panorama. It consists of all formal and non-formal educational processes that focus on cultural heritage, socially appropriate as a resource for the socio-historical understanding of cultural references in all their manifestations, in order to collaborate for their recognition, their appreciation and preservation. It is also considered that educational processes must excel in the collective and democratic construction of knowledge, through the effective participation of communities that hold and produce cultural references, where different notions of cultural heritage coexist.

To meet its objectives, the program addresses issues such as education for citizenship, appreciation of cultural identity, preservation of heritage, training of multiplying agents and dissemination of scientific research. The methodology used seeks to awaken in the community the interest in knowing and understanding its identity, history and culture.
