We foster diverse participation in the heritage domain​

Citizen curation

Citizens are supported in developing interpretations of cultural objects, working together to present their collective view of life, and gaining an appreciation of alternative cultural viewpoints.

Codesign

We collaborate with museum professionals and citizens to design methods that can be used to develop, annotate, and share personal interpretations of cultural objects.

Social cohesion

We develop tools and methods to assist citizens in appreciating similarities and differences within and across community groups to build empathy and understanding.

Design citizen curation methods

We use state-of-the-art technologies to develop tools that allow users to create and semantically annotate their own interpretations. Citizens can use the tools to visualise and reflect on their own opinions and engage with a diverse range of perspectives.

To whom we talk

Heritage institutions

Museums and heritage practitioners that aim to adopt project tools and methods to engage with their patrons.

Community groups

Community organisations and excluded groups that want to codesign and provide feedback on tools and methods.

Public

Social media platforms, newsletters, and local press will help us to reach members of the public that have an active interest in culture.

Educators

School teachers and educators that aim to integrate project results into courses and curricula.
