The Virtual World Heritage Stories project
Virtual World Heritage Stories (WHIST) is a collaborative project between three associated partners: Innlandet County in Norway (Röros mining town and the ciscumference), Region Gävleborg in Sweden (Decorated Farmhouses og Halsingland) and Casa Battlò in Spain. The overall objective of the WHIST project is to develop a methodology for making World Heritage sites more accessible and to engage audiences in new ways. The project aims to explore new ways to disseminate European World Heritage through innovation and digital technology. To do this WHIST will bring together three different sectors - World Heritage sites, the artistic/creative sector and the tech sector – to share expertise and knowledge and to develop new, exciting audience experiences as well as methods for digital dissemination.
Bridging culture and audiovisual content through digital
The WHIST consortium have applied for funding through the EU program Bridging culture and audiovisual content through digital. The application is currently being evaluated and a decision is expected to be reached in the autumn of 2020.
