Civic Epistemologies presented its final outcomes in the international conference Digital Heritage and Innovation, Engagement and Identity, held in Berlin on 13-14 November 2015.

This conference presented research in this area that focusses in particular on the role of digital heritage in citizen engagement and as a means of defining cultural and social identity.

The conference targeted a wide audience, including policy makers, cultural managers and curators, association of citizens, representatives of the educational sector, creative and cultural enterprises.

Two lines have been explored during the Conference:

  • Digitisation is producing a big change that is impacting cultural institutions, their practices, the way that the heritage is preserved, accessed and made available on the Internet
  • The participation of citizens in digitisation activities and co-creation experiences, including the artistic dimension, represents a big potential that is demanding to be unlocked.

During the International Conference, the CIVIC EPISTEMOLOGIES and RICHES partners proposed and discussed to adopt the Berlin Charter which contains a set of principles for encouraging and supporting citizens’ engagement in cultural heritage and humanities research in the digital age. The Charter is open to be adopted by all interested parties (private organisations, public institutions, artists, professionals, researchers and interested citizens).
