Last week was bittersweet as we got to meet our wonderful project partners for the last meeting of Insites to Digital Cultural Heritage. The project aims to reimagine how we create, protect and consume digital cultural heritage. It aims to upskill those cultural heritage custodians, VET providers and business mentors with immersive digital tourism skills.
The first day of the meeting was held in our Leitrim offices. We took stock of the progress that we have made and defined the action plan for the last steps of the project. We have created a number of free resources including; The Digital Cultural Heritage Active Peer Learning Guide, The Digital Cultural Heritage Active Peer Learning Guide and The Curriculum and Open Educational Resources. You can discover all the news and resources on the website: www.insitesproject.eu
Two hard years of work and the production of some powerful resources to help digitise cultural heritage concluded with a fabulous visit to Strokestown Park. The National Famine Museum at Strokestown Park includes a world-class multimedia exhibition designed to tell the story of the Famine through the personal tragedies of the tenants on the Strokestown estate and of their landlords, the once prosperous Pakenham Mahon family. The experience was a wonderful example of the power of digital experiences to enhance cultural heritage.
