“Interacting with Cultural Heritage in the Digital Age” in Mexico City

I will be one of the invited Featured Speakers at the International Conference “Interacting with Cultural Heritage in the Digital Age” (Conferencia internacional: la interacción con el patrimonio cultural en la era digital) on the 4th of December 2015. the Conference will be held at the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City.

The conference is a joint effort by The Mexican National Council for Science and Technology (CONACYT), The National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH)  and the Mexican Network on Digital Technologies for Promotion of Cultural Heritage.

My talk will be on the theme “Enabling Conversations with Cultural Heritage: Designing participative technologies linking material and digital”, and will reflect on the design of novel interactive experiences to engage people with cultural heritage in a participative and dialogical way, drawing from my 20 years of experience in working with cultural heritage technologies and institutions in Europe. The  talk will include examples and lessons learned from several international design projects including the current EU-funded research program meSch – material encounters with digital cultural heritage.
