  1. 1. EVA / Minerva 2014 XIth Annual International Conference for Professionals in Cultural Heritage ATHENA Plus tools for digital storytelling Maria Teresa Natale, Marzia Piccininno (ICCU) Sam Habibi Minelli, Paolo Ongaro, Rubino Saccoccio, Daniele Ugoletti (Gruppo Meta) Marc Aguilar Santiago (i2cat) Barbara Dierickx (Packed) 10 November 2014
  2. 2. Athena Plus is a Best practice network whose main objectives are: • Contribute 3.000.000 digital items to Europeana • Develop a Terminology Management Platform to edit and map multilingual thesauri and terminologies • Develop creative tools for digital exhibitions, cultural routes and educations • Organize workshop and trainings for GLAMs and experts We are a project of the Europeana ecosystem. About us
  3. 3. • 40 partners • 21 EU member state countries • 25 languages • 30 months (March 2013 – August 2015) Facts & Figures AthenaPlus builds on successful experiences developed in the previous ATHENA and Linked Heritage projects: AthenaPlus works at the development of standards that supports interoperability with Europeana.
  4. 4. Knowledge dissemination • One of the main goals of public and private cultural institutions (GLAMs) is the promotion and dissemination of knowledge. • They accomplish their mission thanks to knowledge dissemination tools that include, among others, temporary and permanent exhibitions that follow codified models, whose goal is to expose citizens to the national and international cultural and artistic heritage. 4
  5. 5. Guidelines need The meeting between the languages and methods of traditional cultural promotion (non-virtual exhibitions) and the promotion and dissemination of knowledge through web-based methods (online virtual exhibitions) made it necessary in 2011 to draft shared guidelines and recommendations to encourage the use of the web and maximize its potential. 5
  6. 6. Guidelines These guidelines, aimed at: • Illustrating the state of the art on online virtual exhibitions, both on the basis of the actual experience accrued by various cultural institutes and the observation and analysis of international products • clarifying some concepts that in literature are not yet fully codified, and giving some recommendations and a tool kit to institutions who want to realise projects. ITALIAN, ENGLISH, ARABIC EDITIONS 6
  7. 7. • The term exposition, in its broadest sense, indicates the rational process through which one attempts to divulge a concept or topic by explaining its logical content or linking it to other concepts or topics that help highlight its meaning • The term exhibition indicate an event with a specific venue and time, during which the public can enjoy a series of objects, related to one another and organized according to logical, thematic, spatial, historic, and/or authorial criteria, and made accessible either permanently or temporarily, through one or more narrative routes, with scientific, didactic, and/or promotional goals. • Cultural institutions are increasingly recurring to exhibitions that fall outside the traditional space/time parameters, and are instead staged on IT platforms accessible via the web: these are virtual/digital exhibitions. 7 Glossary
  8. 8. Glossary Current debate: digital exhibition vs. virtual exhibition Virtual exhibitions: to be used mainly in the case of 3D reconstructions in which there is actually also a virtualization environment in which the works are located. Digital exhibitions: the object is not faced with any kind of reconstruction, the work of art is approached "individually", included in a "path" that performs logical combination of materials based on different criteria: subject, author, time , technicalities, ...

  10. 10. Thematic routes 10
  11. 11. Digital Exhibitions • Virtual/digital exhibitions are often generated by real events, even though they may result in products that are autonomous, due to the web language they use. • Online virtual/digital exhibitions can be staged with more or less sophisticated IT tools, depending on the degree of complexity and the goals in question. 11
  12. 12. Digital Exhibitions • In summary, a collection of digital items, in and of itself, does not constitute a material or virtual exhibition. It is only when the items are carefully selected to illustrate a topic, and are tied together forming a narrative or a logical itinerary, that they constitute an exhibition. • Online virtual/digital exhibitions, independently of degree of sophistication of the technology used, can and must be put together in such a way that they can provide alternative experiences to the real event, which can involve the user in a process of discovery, knowledge acquisition, and learning. 12
  13. 13. Digital Exhibitions Any virtual/digital exhibition must rest upon an information architecture that makes up the logical and semantic organizational structure of the project’s information, content, processes and functionality. It is at the heart of any interaction design project. The structure of a virtual/digital exhibition is composed of digital content, information and services. 13 CONTEXT DIGITAL CONTENT CONTENT CUSOENRTSENT INFORMATION SERVICES
  14. 14. Digital Exhibitions During the conception phase, the contents of a virtual exhibition can be aggregated according to thematic relations, which may be more or less prevalent and non-exclusive depending on the objectives to be pursued, such as: Spatial aggregation: objects are connected by real or reconstructed spatial links (e.g. geographic, environmental, urban, housing, etc.) Temporal aggregation: objects are connected by chronological links (e.g. historical period, event, celebration, phase, etc.) Typological aggregation: objects are connected by their typology (e.g. style, manufacturing technique, material, production, etc.) Comparative aggregation: objects are aggregated on the basis of links arising out of the comparison with other models, thus creating a network of similar contents (e.g. comparisons between civilizations, roles, etc.). 14
  15. 15. Digital Exhibitions In addition, there are aggregations which take into account the target audience and the relationship with users: Functional aggregation: function and/or goal which the exhibition can help meet (for example, target users: schools for the disabled, university students … or educational/didactic purposes) Behavioural aggregation: when the exhibition encourages and develops behaviours that can attract other behaviours. This is the case with regards to interactions between multiple communities of users and/or visitors, which bring about broader relationships and new developments (e.g. interactive and community areas, Web 2.0 features). 15 WP5-WP6 Technical meeting Bucharest, 12 March 2014
