    • Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH)
      • “ Intangible cultural heritage (ICH) – or living heritage – is the mainspring of our cultural diversity and its maintenance a guarantee for continuing creativity .
      • “ Many elements of the ICH are endangered , due to effects of globalization, uniformization policies, and lack of means , appreciation and understanding which – taken together – may lead to the erosion of functions and values of such elements and to lack of interest among the younger generations.”
      • UNESCO Convention on ICH, 2003
    • The MEDINS Project
      • “ Identity is Future, the Mediterranean Intangible Space”

    • Multimedia Jam - 19-21.05.2008
    • Virtual Museum Concept
        • “ The ICH is traditional and living at the same time. The depository of this heritage is the human mind , the human body being the main instrument for its enactment, or – literally – embodiment. The knowledge and skills are often shared within a community , and manifestations of ICH often are performed collectively .” UNESCO
      • Make ICH-related resources of different cultures available to educational systems in the Med space and globally
      • Provide resources supporting a broad range of local development strategies that valorise Mediterranean cultures while respecting the survival of communities
      • Generate a framework for the sustainability of the common tools and resources after project completion, within the context of the HERIMED network
    • Common Format
    • Semantic Framework
    • Distributed Multimedia Content

    • Conclusions
      • ICT can play an important role in the promotion and preservation of ICH
      • Public institutions responsible for ICH need to open up to the new role of Web 2.0 technologies
      • Since ICH is defined by local communities, participatory strategies are necessary for any “virtual museum” approach
      • Policies for the UNESCO Convention require multiple tools covering ICH’s political, scientific and social dimensions
      • ICH needs to be put on the agenda for future ICT research areas such as semantic web, augmented reality, storytelling, etc.
