The Digital Story Circle
 Telling and Preserving Heritage Stories in the Digital Realm

SDH callHeritage tells stories of the past. It strengthens identity, gives meaning to our present and helps negotiate our future. The digital realm has the power to transform heritage stories into inclusive conversations where different perspectives meet to develop a common understanding of present-day challenges. 

By engaging diverse users and transcending boundaries of time and place, technologies such as Augmented and Virtual Reality, 3D modelling and artificial intelligence have taken heritage storytelling to the next level.

Telling heritage stories through digital media can foster the creative use of digitally-documented oral histories, creative expressions and performing arts, ensuring the transmission and continuity of humanity’s intangible heritage.
