Empowering communities and citizens in Heritage research


Wednesday 2nd February h. 9-10.30.

This session, organized by the Citizen Heritage  project, will entice an interactive discussion with the audience, focused on understanding the approach methodologies, the various roles and challenges of technology in enabling an inclusive engagement with cultural collections that empowers citizens and community representative organizations in the reappropriation of their heritage.

In particular we will focus on methods for Citizen Science in this regard. The session will be supported by an innovative online tool, QANDR, to administer in real time a set of curated polls, quizzes and Q&A which allows interaction with the session’s participants, as it is used in the CitizenHeritage project.

The Dream Team session will serve as a point of departure for a joint publication in which contributors will be duly credited. We encourage those participants who are willing to engage more deeply in this subject to join in the effort.  In particular, we are eager to learn from related fields about their views on citizen engagement, to enrich our experiences from the point of view of the heritage field. For this Dream Team session, we follow the playbook we usually follow when organizing workshops on metadata development and digital curation for the GLAM sector.
