CINE TALK: Future Digital Possibilities
We believe that museums and heritage organisations can, and should, play a powerful role in imagining different futures for our communities and societies. Digital technologies have the potential to be an important tool in this process. This session draws on the experience of the CINE project partners and others to explore the questions: how can we utilise technological possibilities to be both a preserver of the past and an instigator of new ideas for the future? What digital tools exist to help us? How can we develop new digital tools that meet our particular needs, align with our values, and help us to address the challenging topics of our time in meaningful ways?

Digital technology has changed how we view and present our natural and cultural heritage.
Communities have access to digital multimedia tools and platforms that can be utilised to help preserve their natural and cultural heritage.
In the era of smart phones and mobile technology people have access to devices capture content that ranges from photography, high definition video to 3D artefact scanning and share their content to a global audience. This technology can empower communities to take ownership of their history, heritage and stories.
Through the development of digital tools and promotion of accessible platforms museums and heritage organisations can support communities in the creation of heritage content.
This website provides a series of ‘getting started’, guides for a range of digital tools we believe can provide value to community heritage projects.
