Cultural Heritage: Reuse, Remake, Reimagine Berlin, (Germany), 21-22 November 2016492
Cultural Heritage: Reuse, Remake, Reimagine |
from Digital meets Culture
After the nice success of previous events in Venice and in Tallinn, E-Space Third International Conference is taking place next november in Berlin, hosted by partner SPK at the Hamburger Bahnhof Museum of Contemporary Art.
The themes will spread from the fact that digitization is progressing at Cultural Institutions, and thus previously hidden treasures of Cultural Heritage are becoming visible. However, in today’s digital society existing on the web is not enough. Audiences want to engage with culture, they want to create their own stories not just read the ones that exist, they want to integrate the information in their teaching, their creative projects, they want to play with the material, not only look at it: they want to reuse, they want to remake, they want to reimagine.
The programme is currently under development but at the moment it includes as keynote speakers two renowned experts: Cornelia Sollfrank, well-known new media artist and independent researcher, and Joyce Ray, digital curation and preservation expert and teacher at the Johns Hopkins University.
Together with Harry Verwayen from Europeana and the various project leaders who explored, within Europeana Space, the multifaceted experience of reusing digital cultural heritage, the third conference from the Europeana Space project will showcase the myriad ways that cultural heritage can be used and enriched through new technologies, innovation and the ingenuity of the creative industries.
Detailed programme, and registration will be soon available at: http://berlinconference2016.europeana-space.eu
