WEAVE - Widen European Access to cultural communities Via Europeana
This project aims to develop a framework to link the tangible and intangible heritage of cultural communities, safeguarding the rich and invaluable cultural heritage which they represent. WEAVE will contribute to preserving for future generations the richness of the European identity and its cultural plurality. In particular, the project will aggregate over 5,200 new high-quality records to Europeana related to the rich and invaluable cultural heritage of minority cultural communities, and showcase these collections in a set of engaging editorials on the Europeana website.The project will carry out several capacity building activities to develop a closer connection between cultural heritage institutions (CHIs), minority cultural communities and Europeana. It will offer training, mentorship and guidelines with a focus on proper handling of immaterial cultural heritage and working with vulnerable and marginalised communities.
IN2 coordinates WEAVE that aims to develop a set of open and reusable tools which will employ a mix of AI, machine learning, natural language processing, big data analysis and innovative interface engineering. The toolkit will allow the management of annotations, semi-automatic recognition of specific gestures and movements and visualisation of performances and 3D models. Furthermore, the project will demonstrate how the WEAVE Toolkit can be used by CHIs to better promote collections that would otherwise remain hidden, in educational and destination tourism contexts.
