Digitisation and social impact?

Aarhus 19-21 November 2017

Registration is closed.

The digitisation of cultural heritage collections has been going on for several decades now, promising unprecedented potentials for the GLAM sector to fulfil its public mission of opening up knowledge and
culture to the participation and enjoyment of all citizens.

The big question is, how can the GLAM sector demonstrate that we are achieving this ambition through the digitally powered public engagement efforts we have been developing on the base of digitisation?

Increasingly, politicians and funders are demanding numbers to show that the tax or private money spent on culture have tangible societal impact. How have people’s opportunities to learn, create and contribute to their culture and society improved after we started providing access to digitised collections? Is it even possible to produce hard evidence of such improvements?

Sharing is Caring: Digitisation and social impact? will offer great opportunities to experience some of the many events and activities in connection with Aarhus – European Capital of Culture.



Sharing is Caring is a conference focused on collaboration and sharing in the cultural heritage sector, bringing together practitioners, researchers, and users of culture.

Sharing is Caring has been held since 2011, featuring keynote speakers such as Melissa Terras, Cédric ManaraMichael Edson, Shelley Bernstein, Nick PooleJill CousinsSimon Tanner, and Jasper Visser, as well as a range of practitioners presenting research and case studies within digital culture.

Sharing is Caring is something we share. Interested in running a local extension of the conference, like they did in Hamburg and Brussels? We’re happy to support you! Read more on how to get started.
