Digital storytelling is the topic in focus this month on Europeana Pro, as we hear from the Europeana Network Association’s Task Force on Europeana as a ‘powerful platform for storytelling’. Today, they share the digital storytelling examples they collected from around the web - and around the world - as a longlist and three detailed case studies.
Digital storytelling is our topic in focus this month on Europeana Pro, as we hear from the Europeana Network Association’s Task Force on Europeana as a ‘powerful platform for storytelling’. First up, find out why digital storytelling is all the rage in the cultural heritage sector and how it can help you connect and engage with your audiences.
As part of our Discovering Europe season, last week we explored how cultural heritage institutions across Europe are starting to open their doors. In this post, Tamara Butigan takes a look at a special reopening initiative from two Serbian museums who are using digitised art from their collections on face masks, offering people a new and timely way to engage with their content.
This is the second part of our reporting on the recent events for all things Wikimedia – the annual Wikimania conference, held this year in Stockholm – where Europeana held several associated events. Following the main conference, Europeana convened the inaugural meeting of National Libraries (and equivalent consortium organisations) who are currently working directly with Wikidata and its underlying software Wikibase. This event was organised by our Wikimedia liaison Liam Wyatt and hosted by our partners the National Library of Sweden. Liam updates us here on the meeting content.
Every year during the Northern summer holidays, approximately 1,000 members of the Wikimedia community – the worldwide group of volunteers and professionals behind projects including Wikipedia and Wikidata – gather for their annual event: Wikimania. This year’s event, hosted in Stockholm, had as its theme the relationship of open-access information to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The event's program was chaired for the second year running by Europeana’s own Wikimedia liaison Liam Wyatt, in a voluntary capacity. Today he fills us in on this year’s gathering.
