How can cultural heritage institutions (CHIs) support inclusivity?, 18 February 2022
Digital and social technologies are facilitating new and diverse forms of curatorial practice, which can be harnessed to highlight a balanced view of historical events. This gives the floor to underrepresented communities, in turn supporting inclusivity and diversity. The project is working towards the greater inclusion and involvement of underrepresented communities in content curation, where technologies mediate and allow users to contribute to our histories.
This hands-on workshop will explore the importance of including the representation of cultural communities in the work done by cultural heritage institutions. During the workshop you will learn how CHIs can support inclusivity with practical exercises and facilitated discussions. You will be able to take (parts of) this workshop to repeat these exercises and continue the discussions with your communities and colleagues.
You will be asked to do some preparation before the workshop and work after the workshop. This will take you at least an hour extra.
