The final conference of Civic Epistemologies project takes place in Berlin on 12-13 November 2015: Digital Heritage and Innovation, Engagement and Identity.
Two lines will be explored during the Conference:
- Digitisation is producing a big change that is impacting cultural institutions, their practices, the way that the heritage is preserved, accessed and made available on the Internet
- The participation of citizens in digitisation activities and co-creation experiences, including the artistic dimension, represents a big potential that is demanding to be unlocked.
Integrated in the conference programme, a RICHES workshop will be held on the theme “Community-Led Redesign of Cultural Heritage“.
