VIRTUAL EVENT: Sustainable digital heritage – what is it and why should we care?

Join us for a virtual guest lecture from Maja Maricevic, Head of Higher Education and Science at the British Library.


About this lecture


Digital heritage has been educating, inspiring and cheering up millions throughout the COViD crisis – from a growing number of virtual museum tours to the ingenious interpretations of classic artworks of the #tussenkunstenquarantine trend.


As the importance of digital presence continues to gain momentum as a response to the present crisis, this talk will discuss longer-term sustainability of digital in heritage, the complexity of its varied manifestations and how we might move towards more sustainable and harmonious digital futures.


In particular, this talk will highlight areas other than technology that should not be overlooked as we go forward – from governance and policy to skills development and the importance of embracing innovation and partnerships.


Virtual event details


This virtual lecture will consist of a 45 minute presentation from Maja Maricevic, followed by a 15 minute Q&A chaired by Prof Richard Sandford.
