The role of photographic heritage in empowering communities participation in cultural heritage

Organized by Photoconsortium in cooperation with the Museo della Grafica and University of Pisa and hosted at the Palazzo Lanfranchi, in the very city center on the banks of the river Arno, the event takes the form of a 1-day conference with leading speakers from the Citizen Heritage consortium partners and other experts in digital cultural heritage, in Social Sciences and Humanities research and in the use of participatory approaches in a cultural and/or educational context. The main aim of the event was to offer insights about successful stories of citizen participation in Cultural Heritage Institutions and Higher Education Institutions.

In addition to the conference programme, a digitization and collection desk was organized, inviting participants to share heritage photos from their family albums, which were digitized on the spot by a professional photographer. The stories associated with the image(s) were also collected and converted in appropriate metadata to accompany the digital objects. The collected records were then aggregated by Photoconsortium and shared in Europeana, the European digital library (view the collection).
