ARCHiVe Online Academy 2022

plus JUN, 28 2022

Also for 2022, in the context of the ARCHiVe project, the Giorgio Cini Foundation, will offer a training program dedicated to Digital Humanities. This year the courses will be presented in a hybrid form, weaving together in-person meetings and streaming activities, carrying on the experience at the ARCHiVe Online Academy. The meetings – with free access – are limited in number and aimed at scholars, researchers and anyone who wants to improve their skills in the field of digital preservation and enhancement of cultural heritage.


*** For Ca’ Foscari students, it will be possible to receive up to a maximum of 6 CFU by attending all the lectures and subject to verification of the skills acquired by the University.***


In addition to the academic-style lectures structured in short thematic tracks (scheduled for fall 2022), ARCHiVe will enrich the season with individual presentations of projects by the Cini Foundation and its partners. This new format, “ARCHiVe presents” (June-July, and fall 2022), will also introduce themes and experiences related to the world of digital, cultural heritage preservation and enhancement for wider dissemination of contemporary knowledge.


Some of the meetings will therefore be held in person, at the Cini Foundation, but in any case there will also be live online broadcasting on the Zoom platform and deferred broadcasting on YouTube. Registration is compulsory (please fill the form at the end of the page).
