Yesterday, January 26th, it was held the final event of a 3-days online participatory initiative promoted by the HERIWELL project. In the first part of the meeting the HERIWELL team introduced the goals of the project and a brief description of the past two workshops. The presentations that followed highlighted different aspects of the impact of cultural heritage on the well being of society. A representative of the DG Education and Culture shared with the participants the EU programmes for culture and R&I. The debate was characterized by the exchange of experiences and case studies on participation and digitization applied to cultural heritage. Among others, the example of the Archeological Museum of Naples was reported as successful experience in which the use of digital tools facilitated the access to culture, increasing societal engagement and cultural participation.
Nevertheless the importance to balance digital and sensorial /experience in art was raised by the participants as main aspect to take into account by practitioners of the cultural field.
At the end of the meeting the HERIWELL team shared with the participants the events agenda for 2021. Next meeting is planned for February and will focus on Dissemination.
