Museums in Covid19 times-and the EU versus Virus challenge!

EU announced a Hackathon on solutions during the ongoing pandemic, for Museum and culture institutions that are severely affected: Across Europe, Covid-19 has forced the complete or partial closure of over 90% of museums and heritage sites. The shut-down affects the survival of these institutions, but also visitors and guides. We participated at the EUvsVIRUS Hackathon a weekend (22-24.04.2020) with a clear dedication to creating solutions to the problem. Our project won the Challenge on Social & Political Cohesion – Support arts & entertainment.

Our project GuideYourGuide, proposes the creation of a interactive real- time visit for the ones unable to enjoy cultural experiences because of the current situation. Our platform can provide support and work with Tour guides that are losing their jobs, left without contracts and seeing their livelihoods threatened. With GuideYourGuide heritage sites or museum collections can provide an alternative tour experience. The institutions can publish a list of potential tours which will be implemented by their accredited tour guides, maintaining their high quality offers.

Currently, some of the measures are being lifted and we see cultural institutions reopen bit by bit. Furthermore, measures vary drastically from country to country. However, it will still take a long time before we go back to experiencing our European heritage in the same way as we used to.

After all, European culture is what unites us, what gives us purpose. Being stimulated by art and culture is of utmost importance for mental health and our collective well-being. By fostering social cohesion, we ensure societies’ resilience in times of crisis. To this aim, we found an inclusive, equal, accessible and sustainable solution.

Our participation at both events organised by EU has allowed us to grow as a team, pitch our ides to professionals find interested investors and proceed to an incubation training. A long ride that gave us an insight in the way initiatives, vision and ideas can become established projects and contribute to problem solving initiatives. An enriching working process in a Pan-European frame with the support of EU-Comissioner Mariya Gabriel and an amazing team of volunteers.

S3: 3D modelling workflow Workshop: The 3D modeling workflow workshop will demonstrate the process of making 3D models with the photogrammetry method. A selected object will be photographed on a turntable, and the workflow from a collection of pictures to a complete 3D model will be demonstrated. If time allows, a small animation with the 3D model can be created.

S4: Workshop: Immersive Technologies (VR/AR) for learning 

Immersive technologies, as an umbrella term for virtual, augmented reality and mixed reality (VR/AR/MR), have had an explosive development in recent years and open great opportunities in the context of education and training. This workshop provides an introduction to how these technologies afford immersive, adaptive and explorative learning spaces, well suited for developing high-impact pedagogies. The participants will be able to explore virtual museums and labs, walk the streets of ancient cities, dive to the bottom of the sea and visit Machu Picchu or International Space Station in VR.

The workshop is held by Ekaterina Prasolova-Førland is Professor at the Department of Education and Lifelong Learning at NTNU.

at 14.00-15.30 in small groups

Venue: VR lab Dragvoll campus

S5: Web-Mapping, Web GIS and Visualization of Geospatial Data

This workshop comprises two parts. In the first (2 hrs), participants will be introduced to the idea of online mapping and GIS, and will get the chance to create their own online maps using platforms such as ArcGIS online and CARTO Builder. Through hands on applications participants will also be introduced to  javascript mapping libraries  such as Mapbox.js and OpenLayers , geospatial data format GeoJSON  and the idea of version controlling geospatial datasets. In the second part (2 hrs), the basics of visualising geospatial datasets using Phyton and R languages will be introduced.

Basic knowledge of geographical information systems and related concepts such as vector and raster data structures is necessary for this workshop.

The participants should download and install Sublime Text 3 (https://www.sublimetext.com/3), Phyton (https://www.python.org/downloads/) and R beforehand. For R, participants should choose the right “CRAN mirror” here (https://cran.r-project.org/mirrors.html) to start the installation by choosing a location closest to them.

Cultural heritage sites and Museums especially in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East, are threatened by war, terrorism, climate change, earthquakes, floods, and other threats.  Gunnerus Library in Trondheim organized an exhibition on the subject in October in collaboration with Professor Emeritus, Lise Bender Jørgensen on Niniveh. Read more on that here .

Unesco (see the list of monuments in danger) has been working on the documentation and protection of these sites and has supported many regional initiatives and international teams to create awareness. Various initiatives around the world are now trying to work together in order to prevent illegal trafficking of  antiquities from monuments and archaeological sites threatened by war, climate and looting. ICOMOS and CYARK500 have established lately such an initiative, to launch a program for the emergency documentation of high risk cultural Heritage. The European Community supports many initiatives of such character, see Europeana, 3D icons, Lo-cloud, that is infrastructure projects of documentation and active participation of researchers, scholars and the general public in the protection of such sites. Interdisciplinary teams working on preservation of culture, ask society to participate actively in preserving cultural heritage creating a digital public space and allow political and social diversity to manifest itself. Such initiatives as for example  Heritage for Peace, or Medieval Sai Project or Project Mosul, try to create engagement around these monuments using emerging technology.

We as professionals need to participate in such actions and debates to create a public understanding of these threads and evocate action by the international citizen communities. We also need to inform and keep the memory of the monuments and sites lost to war alive.

Join us then in Bergen and discuss issues as the ethical dilemmas archaeologists face.

  1. How can we safeguard and promote Cultural Heritage as professionals caring more about dead heritage and forgotten ruins in the face of the human tragedies that are unfolding in these places?
  2. Can archaeology and archaeologists be a positive force of change?
