COMMUNIA Salon 4: Which digital policies work for cultural heritage in 2020s?
After three successfully organised virtual “salons”, Communia will, in cooperation with #NoWorries project, organise the fourth one “Which digital policies work for cultural heritage in 2020s?” on Thursday, 17 September 2020. You are welcome to attend!
The online event will take place only three days after the European Commission’s Public consultation on opportunities offered by digital technologies for the culture heritage sector will have come to a close. The aim of the event is to gain the cultural heritage sector stakeholders’ insight on the effects of digital technologies and their proposals on how to shape new and appropriate policies. The discussion will target the new European copyright reform as well, and the cultural heritage institutions-related rules contained in the new Directive on Copyright and Related Rights on the Digital Single Market.
The Salon will be held on Zoom from 15:30 to 17:00 and it will be publicly available to anyone, subject to prior registration. Welcome!
