SAMRT Culture: The SmartCulture project aims at fostering relationships between Cultural Heritage organizations, regional cultural and creative clusters to create partnerships to enlarge the visibility and accessibility of Heritage collections and sites. These relationships will not only provide an opportunity to open up the hidden social and economic potential of heritage and cultural collections through these digital technologies, but also impact on the quality life of culturally diverse citizens.
The SmartCulture Project works to promote the creation of engaging digital experiences for access to cultural resources by the cross fertilization between ICT enterprises, Creative and Cultural Industries (especially SMEs) and research stakeholders across Europe.
Ashtav is the association of small historic towns and villages. Newsletters website and seminars only reach their members and they now need a means to get their message on good planning practice and conservation out to a wider audience. An online game is our proposed mechanism. Fortunately they are reasonably well endowed as a charity and have been able to fund the first five modules themselves and now seek sponsorship or a grant to develop the game fully.
Given the wide and diverse range of academics, businesses, students and Heritage organisations working collaboratively on the DHD project, we will be hosting free monthly “cake” (Collaboration and Knowledge Exchange) mornings to showcase current developments, discuss funding opportunities and tackle current challenges. Plus - there will be cake!
