Multi-sensory, User-centred, Shared cultural Experiences through Interactive Technologies
Towards the democratisation of cultural asset experiences
Advancements in technology have transformed the interactive experience of cultural heritage and its preservation. However, not everyone has access to such experiences, nor the opportunity to participate in the cultural and creative industries. In this context, the EU-funded MuseIT project aims to co-design, develop and co-evaluate cutting-edge technologies to facilitate and widen access to cultural assets in an inclusive way. It also aims to promote inclusion, participation, accessibility and equal opportunities for all by developing a multisensory, user-centred platform for remote immersive co-creative engagement with cultural assets and experiences.

MuseIT aims to co-design, develop, and co-evaluate a multisensory, user-centred platform for enriched engagement with cultural assets with inclusion and equal opportunity for all as core principles. The MuseIT innovation is rooted in multisensory representations of cultural heritage which extend beyond the visual and auditory senses. More specifically, MuseIT will: a) co-design and develop multisensory representations and rendering of cultural assets, b) develop services for inclusive remote co-creation of multi-modal born-digital cultural assets, and c) develop formal specifications and strategies for inclusive archival preservation of cultural heritage. Participatory co-design activities will be integral to enable users with disabilities to be involved in decisions and designs that will affect their lives. Enriched experiences of cultural assets created by MuseIT will not be limited to this group and is likely to enhance the level of participation and enjoyment for all people. Impacts are likely to include the democratization of cultural asset experiences, and tangible growth in creative and cultural industries.
