Seminar: Heritage. Where the past meets the future. Focus on digitalisation

2018-06-28 - 2018-06-29
Join us at the third meeting on the potential of cultural heritage. This time, our attention will be focused on the relationship between heritage and the digital world.

The event, organised by the National Film Archive – Audiovisual Institute (FINA) and the ICC, will consist of a two-day seminar-workshop for institutional owners of archive collections, interested in providing digital access to their collections – TuEuropeana 2018 – as well as an open debate – The experience of heritage in real and virtual world. Museums, libraries, and archives in the digital era.

The event will take place at the ICC on 28 June 2018 from 11.00 am to 5.30 pm and on 29 June 2018 from 9.30 am to 2.00 pm. Its goal will be to present the ways in which institutions can offer online access to their collections, particularly access outside their own internet platforms. Challenges and strategies of this type of activity will be discussed on the example of platforms of various scope and focus: from regional, through national, to European, each time adapted to the specific objectives of given institution.

One of the workshop sessions will address aspects of minimal requirements for collections available online on the level of content and metadata, on the basis of frameworks and standards such as Europeana Data Model, Europeana Publishing Framework and http://rightsstatements.org.

The second day of the meeting will involve workshops dedicated to so-called “Impact Playbook” – methodology developed by Europeana Foundation, which encourages institutions to plan their activities as longterm projects focused on created impact. Drawing on the Playbook, workshop participants will go through a series of engaging exercises that will show them possible ways of thinking about impact and effects created by the institution, also in the context of different target groups.

The meeting in Krakow is a part of a larger project which FINA is realising across Poland. The project consists of four meetings in different regions of Poland: Krakow, Lublin, Słupsk, and Wrocław.

Participation in the seminar is free, but booking is required. Apply by filling the form available at https://forms.nina.gov.pl/tueuropeana_seminarium-krakow/. Deadline for applications is 24 June.
  • Debate: Tradition vs. modernity – museums, libraries and archives in the digital era
  • 28.06.2018, 18:00-19:30, The Ravens Hall, ICC
The year 2018 is the European Year of Cultural Heritage. This offers us a unique opportunity to highlight the potential and impact of cultural heritage on our lives as individuals and entire communities.
Cultural heritage, no longer associated exclusively with historic monuments, but understood as tangible and intangible, also digital inheritance, is one of the most potent factors of human wellbeing, our sense of belonging, security, and identity. It makes an impact on our creativity and innovativeness, it creates jobs and plays an important role in marketing places.

In the 21st century, cultural heritage, particularly heritage management and heritage policy, are facing new challenges and possibilities. Taking into account the rapid modernisation and technological development, the International Cultural Centre and the National Film Archive – Audiovisual Institute, seek to make this debate the tool to analyse and discuss challenges of the digital era in reference to the heritage sector and the skills of heritage users.

Each year an increasing number of objects of cultural heritage is digitalised and published online by a variety of collection owners. Cultural institutions, previously used to showing their artefacts and artworks in physical spaces, need to take into account the digital sphere as well. Online museums or, generally speaking, online repositories of objects of cultural heritage, allow a greater number of people to access heritage and form new types of interactions with it.

What is the relationship between these two spheres? Is there a conflict between traditional experience of cultural heritage in physical and virtual worlds? Or perhaps on the contrary: these two worlds are mutually complementary? Is opening an online collection a risk for the museum’s existence in the real world, etc.? What are the strategies of communication with the audience and engagement of new viewers developed by Polish and European GLAM institutions?

Panellists:
  • Maciej Dydo – deputy director of the Departament of Intellectual Property and the Media of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage

  • Marianna Otmianowska – director of the National Digital Archives

  • Moderator: Aleksandra Janus, Centrum Cyfrowe
The debate is organised as part of Open Lectures of the Academy of Heritage.
