Inclusive innovation: digital creativity and opportunities
DCDC22 will showcase how digital innovation is transforming the cultural heritage and academic sectors and their relationship with their audiences. From individual projects to national programmes, for organisations and groups large and small, we look forward to examining the opportunities and challenges that digital technologies and collaboration can offer.
Emerging technologies have brought considerable benefits to cultural heritage organisations, transforming approaches to institutional collections, our ways of working, and the way people discover and engage with collections. As research continues to drive innovation, how can we ensure that our practices remain relevant, open, inclusive, representative and transformative? How can our practices in turn enable new innovations?
Championing creativity and talent within the GLAMA (galleries, libraries, archives, museums and academia) sector and exploring digital solutions at scale, DCDC22 is a forum for knowledge-exchange between organisations and individuals at all levels. We will explore how research is reimagining how our collections are formed and preserved, how audiences engage with and contribute to our work, and how we plan for the future.
DCDC stands for Discovering Collections, Discovering Communities. We are a cross-sectoral conference, hosted by The National Archives, RLUK and Jisc, that brings together the GLAMA sector to shine a light on our shared experiences, innovations, interests and concerns.
