It is time for the second round of digital workshops for storytelling ! They will be aimed at reflecting on cultural heritage as well as creative writing, and offer the possibility of the participants to share their perception and stories of their neighborhood. We will start a new set of sessions in each pilot in Barcelona, Paris and Lisbon. The new campaign will engage more people in the MEMEX project, which is key to enrich the digital heritage of the pilots.
The European Heritage Days are an opportunity to celebrate the shared cultural heritage of the many different towns, regions, and people in Europe. This year 2021, they embrace inclusivity and highlight regional and national diversity. As part of this event, MEMEX promotes social cohesion through collaborative, heritage-related tools that provide inclusive access to tangible and intangible cultural heritage and, at the same time, facilitate encounters, discussions and interactions between communities at risk of social exclusion. A social media campaign was lead on this occasion.

With the local support of cultural and social sector organizations in Lisbon, Mapa das Ideias has been coordinating the Lisbon pilot since the second semester of 2020. Initial activities of the pilot were addressed to these stakeholders, and we have been reaching migrant participants since November, with the first recorded stories and APP tests by participants in April 2021.
Since the launching of the project, the Paris pilot of the project has been running different activities. Organized by Michael Culture Association and Dedale and the local partners, these events have kept the Parisian pilot going. During the last months, the recording of the stories and the UX tests have been the main focus of the agenda.
Interarts and its local partners (laBonne and Sindihogar) have been organizing many activities for the Barcelona pilot since the begging of the MEMEX project. Last year they participated in online training sessions to ensure the best practices and methodology for MEMEX project. Recently they prepared the online digital storytelling workshops for the participants of the pilot.
