TITLE: inDICEs - Measuring the impact of digital culture

DURATION: 2020-2022

inDICEs is a research project that aims to empower policy-makers & decision-makers in the Cultural and Creative Industries to fully understand the social and economic impact of digitisation in their sectors and address the need for innovative (re)use of cultural assets.

A new way to measure the impact of digital culture
The Cultural Heritage Sector is a key enabler of the advancement of the Cultural and Creative Industries in Europe. Not only does it provide access to vast amounts of reusable cultural content, it can be seen as a R&D lab of the cultural and creative ecosystem through which it contributes both to the economic advancement and to society at large. However, researchers and policy-makers are struggling to fully understand the crucial role that the Cultural Heritage Sector can play in the digitisation process of the cultural and creative ecosystem in Europe.

inDICEs Bootcamp in Barcelona - November 2021

On 23-24 of November, Platoniq held the inDICEs’ Bootcamp in Barcelona. The dynamic event gathered project partners and the general public, to  collaborate and participate in a series of hands-on activities as well as keynotes and workshops.

With this inspiring space, the inDICEs’ Bootcamp brought together professionals and practitioners working at the intersection of data, digitization and cultural heritage. In the course of the 2-day event, attendees were divided and grouped into dedicated task forces, with the duty to explore diverse issues with the use of data. During the intensive sessions, the participants used different tools, from the analogue sets of pencil colours and paper to the online environment of the inDICEs Open Observatory. Some of the reviewed issues were gender inequality in the arts, datafied political participation, and data collection for impact in GLAMs.
