Storytelling with digital culture

In this webinar, we hear from members of a Europeana Task Force that has been collecting and analysing examples of online digital storytelling from the cultural heritage sector.

About

Humans have always told, retold and listened to stories. They allow us to make sense of the world, to learn, and to empathise and connect with each other. Cultural heritage institutions are increasingly using digital media to share the stories of their collections online.

In this webinar, we hear from members of a Europeana Communicators Task Force that has been collecting and analysing examples of online digital storytelling from the cultural heritage sector. Discover some of the examples we loved and find out how we approached the task of analysing our emotional reactions to them.

This webinar took place on 9 June 2021.
