Yemen has an ancient civilization and a great folk heritage as there were several Yemeni civilization that inherited us their traces and history which made Yemen the cot of civilization,
From that ancient civilization did come out idea of the renaissance, documenting, and circulating Yemeni heritage using the modern technology and techniques in order to create an awareness of the great importance of maintaining the Yemeni heritage which in turn will contribute in focusing upon the Yemeni heritage as we believe that “Our heritage is our future”.
In our project, we will use some graphics that fit different levels of the society and we will create a sense of awareness towards preserving the Yemeni heritage and preserving that heritage to Yemenis as will as non- Yemenis in three languages (Arabic- English and French). Moreover, we will provide our service in the form of CD, DVD, and an electronic website. We made emblem for Yemenis which is “your heritage is your future” while we made another emblem for non-Yemenis which is “Enjoy Yemen” and “Amusez-vous au Yémen » for instance. We will start working on the Yemeni architecture.
