The VAST project joined the UNCHARTED network

Share

The VAST project (Values Across Space and Time) is an international collaboration between eight partners from five countries: National Center for Scientific Research Demokritos (Greece), Università degli Studi di Milano (Italy), National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (Greece), Universidade NOVA de Lisboa – NOVA (Portugal)Fairytale Museum (Cyprus), Semantika (Slovenia), Museo Galileo (Italy) and Athens & Epidaurus Festival (Greece).

The project aims to study the transformation of moral values across space and time with specific focus on the core European values considered fundamental for the formation of sustainable communities and peaceful coexitance such as freedom, democracy, equality, tolerance, dialogue, human dignity, the rule of law and others. VAST envisions to bring values to the forefront in the field of advanced digitisation. By providing advanced modelling, methods, techniques and digital tools, enabling the collaborative study, annotation and continuous capture and digitisation of experiences, VAST will examine narratives that represent significant moments of European culture/history and narratives stemming from citizen experiences, to study how the meaning of specific values has been expressed through different narratives (Greek tragedies, 17th century Scientific Revolution texts, folktales) and user experiences (artists, spectators, curators, museum visitors, pupils).
The new collaboration between VAST and UNCHARTED is a good opportunity to enlarge the horizon of both projects and increase the sharing of experiences and knowledge in the mutual interest of the promotion of culture.
