Ready to Reach out: verslag van de internationale conferentie
9 augustus 2016Tweet
Op 29 en 30 juni vond het internationale congres "Ready to Reach out: connecting cultural heritage collections and serving wider audiences" plaats. Digitaal erfgoed nam een centrale plaats in op dit congres en DEN-directeur Marco de Niet was een van de sprekers. Onlangs verscheen een uitgebreid verslag.
Marco de Niet sprak over de Europese Open Method of Coordination (OMC) werkgroep. Uit het verslag:
"Next up on the stage is Marco de Niet, director of the Digital Heritage Agency (DEN) in The Netherlands. De Niet is an active participant in the Working Group on Promoting Access to Culture via Digital Means and his presentation summarises the progress achieved by the group. The Open Method of Coordination (OMC) working group of European experts aims to establish policy recommendations, especially to the EU-member states, on promoting access to culture via digital means, as well as identifying and studying the impact of the digital shift, a recurring theme throughout
these two conference days. 'Very much in line, with what we were discussing here earlier,' he queries, 'how can we move the work that we’re doing and get more involvement from our audiences, and put it really at the heart?' To get a broad perspective, twenty member states are involved. Aside from that, participants have included a wide variety of people from cultural institutions and engaged with cultural heritage; from the arts and from libraries; from media representatives; and from government, including ministries of culture. The work of the OMC working group will result in a handbook that should be finished by the end of the year."
