Digital Echoes Symposium 2015

Digital Echoes 2015 will bring together artists, researchers and practitioners interested in exploring how digital environments intervene in the creation, documentation, circulation and reception of culture. The focus of this year’s event is on the potential and limits of digital technology for affording new ways to engage with traditional forms of cultural heritage as audience, user, artist, author, researcher and co-creator.

This year’s theme is inspired by current research carried out at C-DaRE for the EC funded projects Europeana Space  and RICHES. Europeana Space aims to increase and enhance the creative industries’ use of digital cultural content by delivering a range of resources to support new forms of engagement, interaction and reuse. RICHES (Renewal, Innovation and Change: Heritage and European Society) researches the context of change for European cultural heritage with particular attention to the impacts of digital technology, and maps its social, economic and legal implications.

This on-going research at C-DaRE opens up questions about change, innovation and reinvention of cultural heritage through digital media. We welcome contributions to Digital Echoes that engage with the broad area of intangible and performance-based cultural heritage.
