Digital Cultural Heritage

We are an interdisciplinary lab for anybody interested in the use of digital technologies to support cultural activities or
interpret the past.

Our members include researchers and practitioners from a wide range of disciplines and industries. We support a broad spectrum of activities including mentoring, hacking/making events and seminars.
