The Crowd Heritage project allows the user to discover digital artefacts and collections from museums, archives, libraries and galleries in Europe. People are encouraged to contribute to five collections participative annotation campaigns by tagging and adding annotations, such as comments, and select colours or imagines. Top contributors will be rewarded with prizes.
The project is based on a standalone online platform developed by the project coordinator National Technical University of Athens. The platform aims to develop the users experience thanks to participative annotations, depending on the type of content, missing metadata, and validate existing annotations in a user-friendly way. Through the online platform of data collections, people get access to several collections of cultural content from various Institutions in Europe. According to each campaign, you are invited to contribute by tagging and adding annotations or select colours or images.
Crowd Heritage is implemented by a consortium of five European partners:
- National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), coordinator of the project
- Europeana Fashion International Association (EFIA)
- French Ministry of Culture
- Michael Culture Association
- Europeana Foundation
