Format

The conference will take place on 3rd-4th June 2019. We wish to encourage a wide range of participants to contribute in a variety of formats, including panels, talks, interactive events, papers, demonstrations, and site visits. Students and staff from the University of Lincoln will initiate an interactive ‘Heritage Hack’, with preparatory workshops running in May 2019 leading to demonstrations throughout the conference.

The conference’s multi-format approach will be structured around paper presentations, panels, workshops and ‘bootcamps’ – styled as Q & A sessions with sector experts.

Day 1 Programme sessions will begin on Monday. The day will feature the opening keynote lecture and conference drinks reception in the evening.

Day 2 will feature keynote lectures and a series of parallel sessions aligned to the conference themes. Digital heritage projects will be showcased, and there will be the opportunity to take part in tours of heritage centres and projects on campus, including the Media Archive for Central England (MACE) and the student designed ‘Heritage Hack’.

Optional extras: site visits will be offered – further details to follow soon.

co_Lab @ Heritage Hack

The co_LAB research group based within the Lincoln School of Film and Media will undertake an intensive workshop bringing together staff, students, stakeholders and experts from across the Heritage Dot network to tackle a challenge prevalent to contemporary society.

In May 2019, the challenge will be to find ways to engage young people in heritage through digital platforms in what we are calling the ‘co_LAB Heritage Hack’.

Over the course of 5 days, participants will be exposed to the key topics from the stakeholders themselves, undertake discovery-based learning through discussion, conceptual design processes and site visits with the goal of producing a series of experimental mixed media proof of concepts.

This co_LAB workshop will act as a preparatory/preliminary workshop for the ‘Heritage Hack’ in September. Participants will then be invited to further develop their ideas, receive feedback and expert advice from delegates as they present their findings through interactive installations and manifestations.
