RICHES workshop session in Berlin: Community-Led Redesign of Cultural Heritage

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".
