The aim of the project Creative Kvarken was to develop the spaces and visitor experiences of the Kvarken Archipelago World Heritage area and to consider new World Heritage products and events.
The five World Heritage sites Decorated farmhouses of Hälsingland in Sweden, Kvarken Archipelago in Finland, Thingvellir in Iceland, Kongernes Jelling in Denmark and Røros Mining Town and the Circumference in Norway will for the years to come build a nordic network for World Heritage sites who works with virtual reality (VR).
The project has been completed as of 31.10.2022.
The main task of the project has been to collect stories from the Kvarken Archipelago World Heritage Area and make these available to visitors. A number of the stories have been collected into an audio guide, which is available to visitors before, during and after the visit to the Kvarken Archipelago. In the terrain, information boards are exposed, which tell about the audio guide and in some cases about the place where the boards are located.
