LOCATION: Milli Kütüphane Başkanlığı, Bahçelievler Son Durak 06520 Ankara, Turkey

In the 21st century, the world faces epochal changes which affect every part of society, including the arenas in which Cultural Heritage (CH) is made, held, collected, curated, exhibited, or simply exists. The workshop will be the framework to understand this context of change and the impact of the move from analogue to digital. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss and answer key questions as:


How can CH institutions renew and remake themselves?

How should an increasingly diverse society use our CH?

How may the move from analogue to digital represent a shift from traditional hierarchies of CH to more fluid, decentred practices?

How, then, can the EU citizen, alone or as part of a community, play a vital co-creative role?

What are the limitations of new technologies in representing, promoting and transmitting CH?

How can CH become closer to its audiences of innovators, skilled makers, curators, artists, economic actors?


The workshop is organised around three main sessions, where best practice examples will be presented, including open discussion with the audience. During the third, completely interactive session, the participants will address specific aspects linked to the workshop topics in parallel discussion groups.


Session 1: The move from analogue to digital

Session 2: Cultural Heritage transmission in a changing world

Session 3: Discussion groups

TRANSMITTING CULTURAL HERITAGE: preserve & curate in a context of change
