The travelling MEMEX Exhibition is coming!


News from UNCHARTED community! MEMEX, the three-year H2020 project, aims to  promote social cohesion through collaborative, heritage-related tools that provide inclusive access to tangible and intangible cultural heritage and, at the same time, facilitate encounters, discussions and interactions between communities at risk of social exclusion.

In the next few days it will kick off the Traveling MEMEX Exhibition which from September will continue until December.
The event will be an opportunity to discover the stories created by the inhabitants through the MEMEX project, the project methodology, the prototype app, the pilot projects and the policy recommendations.

In Lisbon, Barcelona and Paris participants were engaged by the MEMEX project’s partners in a digital storytelling journey based on a dedicated methodology and a co-designed app aiming to reinforce inclusion and cultural participation: visiting local heritage through guided tours, reflecting on these places and expressions, identifying the topics and writing their stories, and finally, co-creating audio-visual stories, emphasizing the active role of the participants in re-interpreting existing heritage and in co-creating plural meanings of it.

The MEMEX exhibition will present some of the stories as well as the social and technological development of the project.
The exhibition entrance is free in all locations and open to all.

The itinerary of this narrative journey includes:

  • Lisbon – 19/09/2022 – 29/09/2022 – Pharmacy Museum – R. Mal. Saldanha 1, 1249-069 Lisboa, Portugal – Public opening on September 19th (5pm GMT +1)
