About WEAVE Final Conference

Weaving digital culture: tangible and intangible heritage, cultural communities and the digital transformation

16 September 2022, in Girona and online

Preceded by the plenary meeting of WEAVE consortium, held at the premises of Arxiu Municipal in Girona, the WEAVE project organized on 16th September 2022 its final conference, which explored the connections between tangible and intangible heritage, cultural communities and the process of digital transformation of cultural heritage organisations.

The conference was hosted by partner CRDI at Centre Cultural La Mercè and streamed online. It was opened with a welcome message by Joan Boadas (CRDI Director) and George Ioannidis (IN2/WEAVE coordinator).

Recordings and speakers’ presentations are published below. After the talks, for the participants in Girona a networking lunch and a digital exhibition gave the floor to all participants to engage in a lively discussion following the inspiration drawn from the programme.

To conclude the event, an interesting workshop about photogrammetry digitization took place to illustrate modern techniques to create accurad te and high quality 3D models of cultural heritage objects, with a particular focus on heritage photography.
