ECCOM provides online training to MEMEX pilot partners, to deliver guidelines for the Social Impact Evaluation of the project.
The three workshops with Interarts Foundation (Spain), Mapa das Ideais (Portugal) and Michael Culture and Dédale (France) were led by Cristina Da Milano and Pascuala Migone, a training cycle dedicated to gain a better understanding of the methodology and evaluation instruments that will be applied. After the training comes one of the crucial phases of MEMEX: the collection of personal stories and memories related to the local cultural heritage of the Ciutat Vella district in Barcelona, the 19th district of Paris and among first, second and third generation Portuguese migrants in Lisbon. To this end, a series of training seminars will be organized with the target communities, with particular attention to storytelling techniques and the role of creativity as vehicles for the generation of inclusive and transformative narratives.
MEMEX (MEMories and Experiences for inclusive digital storytelling) is a project funded by the European Union’s program for research and innovation – Horizon 2020, which promotes social cohesion through cultural heritage and the use of digital tools, with the aim of providing inclusive access to tangible and intangible cultural heritage and facilitating interactions between communities at risk of social exclusion.
