WP 2 – Stories of the History – Roaming Exhibitions and Storytelling

Background

Without a doubt, archives are the keepers of our shared cultural heritage. Sadly, the potential of this vocation remains to a large extend unknown to and unperceived by the public.

Innovation

To invite the public to discover archival (digital) treasures and learn about the importance of archives for our cultural heritage, we will create 3 roaming exhibitions, including the roaming of some 120 key documents and the creation of transmedia interactive products (videogames and apps) to tell the stories of our shared past to the public – to young and old, to history enthusiasts to expert historians, to unexpected and anticipated usercommunities of archives.

Roaming transmedia exhibitions

The exhibitions will roam through Spain, Portugal, Norway, Austria, Malta and Hungary. Each roaming exhibition will focus on a specific topic – each telling a story of shared European history:

  • The construction of Europe – History, Memory and Myth of Europeanness over 1000 years
  • Exiles, Migratory flows and Solidarity
  • European Discoveries: From the New World to New Technologies
