SPICE: Social cohesion, Participation, and Inclusion through Cultural Engagement

The SPICE EU project

Social cohesion, Participation, and Inclusion through Cultural Engagement

The aim of the SPICE project is to foster diverse participation in the heritage domain through a process of “citizen curation”, which helps EU citizens to develop their own personal interpretations of cultural objects, work together to present their collective view of life through culture and heritage, and gain an appreciation of alternative cultural viewpoints.
Working in cooperation with museums, SPICE will develop tools for modelling users and groups and recommending content in the heritage domain in a way that assists citizen groups in building a representation of themselves and appreciating a variety of viewpoints.
A Linked Data infrastructure will support citizen curation using social media platforms in a way that gives heritage institutions control over rights protected digital assets and access to citizens responses to their collections.
