The event “Preserving heritage, inspiring tourism: Building on the Europeana – Cultural Routes collaboration” will bring together representatives from two key networks in digital culture and tourism—the Europeana Initiative and the Cultural Routes of Europe—and aims to inspire participants to build strong connections and explore viable collaborations.
The first part of the event will introduce the two initiatives and highlight the strategic importance of this partnership in the context of the common European data spaces. Next, it will highlight the practical outcomes of this collaboration within the Jewish History Tours project and present tools, services, example products and evidence-based recommendations for developing engaging touristic experiences with digital cultural content. Jewish History Tours is an innovative project that leverages the power of location-based storytelling to create engaging and high-quality tours on Jewish life and culture, dealing with pan-European topics, such as multiculturalism, persecution and migration.
In the afternoon, participants can build up their knowledge and skills related to the various aspects of reuse in the intersection of culture and tourism and choose to join capacity building workshops on data aggregation, use of AI and other innovative technologies and storytelling.
The event will take place online on Monday, June 19, 2023 from 10.00 – 17.00 CEST, in English.
