Can cultural heritage be a larger part of our lives?
Digitisation of heritage collections is an important part of giving more people access to virtual copies of original items and preserving artefacts in digital replicas. In COVID times museums and archives realized more than ever how vital it is to use the internet to bring heritage to people. And how the curiosity of the crowd can be harvested in informative and creative ways. In this session we learn about community engagement, co-production and we discuss how crowdsourcing can be used to gather information and preserve cultural heritage.
