Save the Date!
The digital // memory symposium goes into the second round

Join us for the second time on October 1, 2021, 11.00am to 12.45pm, as we discuss the future of digital memory culture in Poland and Germany.

Last September, about 100 participants joined us to debate changes that the pandemic brought to museums and other cultural institutions. They also got an exclusive insight into the first year's projects of the digital // memory funding program, supported by the Foundation Remembrance, Responsibility and Future (EVZ). For more information on the previous funding year see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJs53wXYI2I.

Also this year, the Foundation EVZ invites all interested parties to celebrate the end of the current funding year of digital // memory.

The event will feature a keynote by Ewa Manikowska, one of the founding partners of digiCONFLICT, a research consortium on digital heritage in cultural conflicts (https://digiconflict.net/). She will give us exciting insight into the work of her team dealing with multimedia museums.

Additionally, seven project teams will be present, who have spent a year working on different digital formats for historical-civic education in Poland and Germany. Get inspired by innovative ways to communicate history and culture digitally and discuss their use as well as their application with the creators themselves.

The funded institutions this year are

Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site
Grodzka Gate – NN Theatre Lublin
Documentation Center Nazi Party Rally Grounds Nuremberg
Zapomniane Foundation (Warsaw)
Arolsen Archives
Romani Phen (Berlin)
Amcha e.V. (Berlin).
