DARIAH DAY – Cultural Heritage, Natural Heritage and Digital Humanities

A DARIAH day will be organised at the University of Avignon on 4 December 2017. The aim is to link together areas of expertise related cultural and natural heritage with digital humanities. The event is organised in the framework of European Research Infrastructure DARIAH ERIC and the Horizon 2020 funded project Humanities at Scale.

Two interdisciplinary research domains are concerned by the event, cultural heritage and natural heritage. Researchers working on these domains frequently face questions raised by the analysis of text corpora as well as visual representations generated by this data.

The event will begin with the presentation of the AGORANTIC Federating Structure for Research and the DARIAH infrastructure. Furthermore, invited speakers will present their research projects in the field of Digital Humanities.

The objectives of this event are:

– Inform and propose solutions on how get in touch with European DH researchers, how to participate in DARIAH Working Groups, which tools are available, which training activities are proposed etc.;

– Present research projects in the domain of Digital Humanities.

Il 2018 sarà l’anno europeo del patrimonio culturale, per questo motivo il network DiCultHer ha avviato una serie di iniziative per cogliere l’occasione digitale per la cultura in Europa.

Per DiCultHer, quella del 2018 è una grande occasione e una sfida per avviare la definizione della “Cultura Digitale” come patrimonio culturale in forma digitale intangibile e immateriale, il Digital Cultural Heritage, che identifica entità, processi e fenomeni la cui essenza, manifestazione ed espressione risiede nella trasferibilità e replicabilità nello spazio e nel tempo dei patrimoni che categorizzano, identificano e qualificano la storia e l’esistenza delle comunità con il loro contesto sociale e culturale.

Tra le attività organizzate dal network per il 2018 ci sono: il Convegno “a rete” La via digitale. Comunicare il patrimonio che va da novembre a febbraio 2018 (qui la programmazione). Tra queste, le iniziative di rilievo sono: un convegno a Campobasso dal 15 al 16 novembre sul tema Il Territorio digitale , subito dopo a Foligno, dal 24 al 25 si terrà il primo EXPO di progetti di Alternanza Scuola Lavoro nel settore del Digitale e della Cultura.

Ad aprile, ci sarà #SCUD2018, la terza edizione della Settimana delle culture digitali “Antonio Ruberti” il cui tema principale sarà I giovani “titolari” dell’Europa.
A seguire, ci sarà la terza edizione del concorso Crowd-dreaming: i giovani co-creano culture digitali il cui tema sarò I giovani “titolari” dell’Europa.
Sempre tra le attività in programma, segnaliamo #HackCultura2018, l’hackathon degli studenti per la “titolarità culturale”.

Per finire, DiCultHer lancerà all’inizio del 2018, una rivista online sui temi e le ricerche sul digitale applicato al patrimonio culturale, materiale ed immateriale , in collaborazione con l’infrastruttura di ricerca europea

Beyond the Obvious | Belonging & Becoming: Culture, Heritage and our Future

November 15-17, Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Rome.

We all long to belong. In a world that is rapidly changing, a sense of Belonging to communities, cultures, territories offers a much needed anchor and allows us to remain active players in our environments. Landscapes of belonging, however, are nuanced – we ‘belong’ and are perceived to belong in many different ways at many different scales. This enables us to engage in the active, perpetual process of Becoming citizens, societies and living up to our own potential. It allows us to envision new narratives and imagery that connect pasts, presents and futures.

While culture is a cohesive force, cultural divides are constructed to satisfy simplified political rhetoric. How can we, as artists and cultural operators, engaged citizens and policy makers, rationalists and visionaries, develop an inclusive belonging? What is the impact of civic participation on social cohesion? How can we on all levels – local, national and European – create an understanding of belonging based on diversity and inclusion?

Cultural operators from Europe and beyond will share their visions, as will academic thinkers and social innovators from urban and peri-urban contexts. We will discover new places for sharing thoughts and preparing joint actions. Just prior to the launch of the European Year of Cultural Heritage, this gathering will forge a coalition between urban political leaders and key representatives from all cultural sectors and will provide agenda-setting perspectives on cultural heritage (material, immaterial and digital) as asset, ambition and appropriation, connecting sustainability and social innovation in powerful and pragmatic messages.

We are pleased to announce that the DARIAH Innovation Forum #1 will take place on Nov 2-4 in Aarhus.

Time for registration by October 25th: please go to the webshop of the university of Aarhus.


During this 3-day event keynotes, workshops and a matchmaking event will highlight DARIAH’s relations with traditional and digital industries. The DARIAH Innovation Forum is organised in the framework of our Humanities at Scale (HaS) project.

Taking place in Europe’s Capital of Culture

Aarhus is European Capital of Culture 2017, and will offer a vibrant environment of cultural events, artistic interventions and performance productions, creative neighborhoods and culinary venues for the DARIAH Innovation Forum. The event takes place back-to-back with Creativity World Forum (Nov 1-2), the annual grand scale event for the global organization Districts of Creativity, this year hosted by Aarhus 2017 European Capital of Culture.


The Innovation Froum #1 will strengthen and further explore cooperations of DARIAH and traditional industries associated with Arts and Humanities, like design and media, as well as new digital industries, like game development, social media, VR and AR.

Arts and Humanities have traditionally contributed on a large scale to both societal re-thinking, change and innovation as well as to shaping models and input for public innovation. Today, very much furthered by the digital transformation, Arts and Humanities may have a unprecedented window of opportunity for impacting both societal change, cultural re-thinking and the development of creative talent.

Arts and Humanities’ innovation potentials are closely related to cultural heritage and the new roles of GLAM institutions, to a global field of digitally enhanced education and training, and to the development of interactive applications for e.g. social media and crowd sourcing as well as for born digital resources with Cultural (Big) Data, the Internet of (Cultural) Things.

Digital Arts and Humanities may prove seminal to how cultural creative value chains for more than economic measures can be analyzed, reported and brought to public knowledge and creative application, and form a basis for policy making on an European level, where cultural spill-overs for creative innovation and the cultural creative sector are in focus.

The DARIAH Innovation Forum #1 brings together researchers and the creative industries. Through its membership organisations, DARIAH already has a large expertise in the management and creative use of complex digital media assets, which underlie a lot of economic activity within the context of the European content industries.

The Innovation Forum will strengthen and further explore cooperations of DARIAH and traditional industries associated with Arts and Humanities, like design and media, as well as new digital industries, like game development, social media, VR and AR.

A detailed programme can be found here.
