Digital Echoes 2015 brought together artists, researchers and practitioners interested in exploring how digital environments intervene in the creation, documentation, circulation and reception of culture. The focus of this year's event was on the potential and limits of digital technology for affording new ways to engage with traditional forms of cultural heritage as audience, user, artist, author, researcher and co-creator.

Antonella Fresa, Promoter's Director, delivered a presentation on Citizen science in the research on cultural heritage and humanities (PDF, 1 Mb) during the afternoon panel. She talked about the experience of the Civic Epistemologies project. She is the project's technical coordinator.
