Description:

Artefacts and objects have an important position in museums and cultural heritage institutions. Here artefacts are the authentic objects which audience could have an experience of historical phenomena or of art works. Digital media and communication technologies bring new perspectives into the field that involves new practices both among the audience and visitors and among the different departments of the institutions. Well-designed, inclusive artefacts could increase accessibility and participation in various ways in cultural heritage issues. The workshop will explore various ways of building engagement with cultural heritage issues and sites.
