Preserving culture and heritage on the digital age

In Estonia we have seen a rapid change in our museum landscape – there are less objects on the display and more interactive elements and information screens. Also, as we all know, our life is (moving) online and more and more ideas, concepts and subcultures appear only online without any physical objects.

Vabamu Museum of Occupations and Freedom invited us to curate a seminar about “Preserving culture and heritage on the digital age”.

We invited five specialists to share their views and ideas when it comes to digitally born content and preserving our culture and heritage. We discussed about the following topics: how are web archives being used and by whom; memory narration on social media; the meaning of the digital objects themselves and the potential of hybrid digital-physical collections and much more. 

Speakers and panelists:

  • Jaana Davidjants (University of Tallinn, Estonia)
  • Dr Katrin Tiidenberg (University of Tallinn, Estonia)
  • Dr Mari Sarv and Piret Voolaid (Estonian Literary Museum)
  • Dr Stacey Pitsillides (Northumbria University, UK)
  • Tiiu Daniel (Estonian National Library)

The online seminar is organised by Vabamu Museum of Occupations and Freedom in collaboration with Archaeovision, Tallinn University and Estonian Museum Association.

Seminar was part of the project “Collecting digital culture in Estonian museums”.
