SPICE: Social cohesion Participation Inclusion through Cultural Engagement

Professional Forum

Tuesday, April 06, 2021: 11:00am - 12:00pm - - Professional Forum

Tsvi Kuflik, The University of Haifa, Israel

One of the major challenges in cultural heritage now a days is how to engage visitors and make them active participants rather than passive observers. The overall aim of the SPICE EU project is to foster diverse participation in the heritage domain through a process of “citizen curation”. Citizens will be supported to: develop their own personal interpretations of cultural objects; work together to present their collective view of life through culture and heritage; and gain an appreciation of alternative cultural viewpoints. The aim of the forum is to discuss the challenges, present our ideas for technology-based solutions and get into discussion with MW participants, to gain understanding about their points of view on the matter, ideas and solutions implemented in their institution and encourage the MW community to consider the idea of “citizens curation”.
