Driving engagement – participatory approaches to digital cultural heritage

The Europeana conference ‘Driving engagement – participatory approaches to digital cultural heritage’, an accompanying event of the Slovenian Presidency, explores aspects of public engagement and participation with digital cultural heritage, showcasing real-world examples and sharing experiences and insights.


In a series of presentations and Q&A sessions, a diverse range of speakers introduce current practices and trends in digital participation, and discuss the current opportunities and challenges in this space.
