Digital Urban Remembering: A symposium on digital media and urban cultural heritage

On 10 June 2016, the relationship between digital media and urban cultural heritage will be discussed in a symposium organised by Dr. Arno van der Hoeven. 

At this event, researchers and heritage practitioners will examine how digital media (e.g. games, social networking sites and virtual reality) enable new approaches to exploring and presenting the urban past. Furthermore, they will discuss how digital media can be used by heritage institutions to co-create heritage stories with their publics. This symposium for researchers, heritage practitioners and students will be held in Dutch.

 Speakers include:

  • Pieter van den Heede (Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication) on games and urban cultural heritage.
  • Marijke Oosterbroek on co-creation in the Amsterdam Museum.
  • Olaf Janssen & Lieke Hoefs (National Library of the Netherlands): Wikipedia, cultural heritage and the city.
  • Saskia Kuus (Library of the Hague) on the project ‘Haagse Herinneringen’.
  • Lizzy Komen (the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision): Virtual reality and urban cultural heritage.
