Digital Stories of Small historic towns

The project objective is to better exploit the potential of ICTs for improving the ‘digital’ attractiveness of cultural heritage and to promote interaction with ‘new digital audiences’ in small historic towns.Through joint learning processes, local cultural teams in participating towns will develop and pilot a unique innovative approach to digital communication with their audiences and interpret the ‘tangible and intangible’ heritage of small historic towns using the ’digital Story‘ concept, which will be disseminated and later applied in other small historic towns across Europe. Only in this way will small historic towns and their cultural actors be able to step from under the shadow of large historic cities and sites.
