Europeana Communicators recently held their first ‘Solve-It-Session’ webinar on digital storytelling. Here, we look at the topics and themes that came up and share the recording so you can watch again.
The revolution in digital technology and the accessibility to new material via digital storytelling are changing the way researchers are able to look at the period of the First World War. Projects like Europeana 1914-1918, which combines institutional and publicly contributed material, are disrupting the research life cycle and promoting new insights into historical research. Dr. Agiatis Benardou, Senior Researcher at Digital Curation Unit / ATHENA R.C. – a Europeana DSI-4 partner – fills us in.
Rounding out our series on digital storytelling, Gregory Markus, Project Leader at the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, lets us listen in on their latest projects. Via the RE:VIVE initiative, they’re reusing cultural heritage material to make electronic music that brings sounds and memories of the past to current audiences.
As part of our series this month on digital storytelling, Sofie Taes and Valentina Bachi join us from Photoconsortium – part of the collaborative team behind ‘WeAre#EuropeForCulture’ – to share how they’re blending crowdsourced heritage with institutional heritage to bring stories across Europe to life.
Today, as part of our digital storytelling series, Peter Soemers, chair of Europeana Communicators (a specialist community of the Europeana Network Association) provides some insights and tips for social media storytelling following his recent 10-day, 150-tweet @OpenGLAM Twitter takeover.
