Next CreativeCH's Workshop announced. New skills and professionalization for the Digital Arena

The DISH 2013 Conference will be held in Rotterdam (NL) on the 2nd and 3rd December 2013

Is the training background of heritage professionals up to 21st century challenges arising from social and cultural changes, technology progress and economy? We believe it is not, and with this workshop we want to discuss how it needs to be revolutionized

Which new skills are required for creating cultural heritage based products and services, professionalization processes, and best practices in education and training? Educational and vocational training offers in the area of Cultural Heritage are typically rather specialized, addressing librarians, archivists, museum curators and other CH professionals, while offers for developing skills for creative industries focus on creativity, technical and business development.

The workshop aims to analyze what is currently available for practitioners in the field of Cultral Heritage, in order to identify the gaps that need to be filled and will revolve around a series of questions: what new skills are necessary for creating innovative cultural and creative products and services based on cultural heritage resources; what is the required mix of expertise in arts and humanities, technical applications and business development; how do we effectively digitize and make accessible cultural heritage resources and how do we contextualize and interlink them in innovative ways. 

Recent initiatives and examples of best practices will be presented, which will show how it is possible to bridge the divide between these two worlds.
