REACH, Re-designing Access to Cultural Heritage for a wider participation in preservation, (re-)use and management of European culture, is a three-year project, started on the 1st of November 2017, to establish a Social Platform for participatory approaches and social innovation in culture.
The project is supported by the European Commission in the frame of the Horizon2020 programme, and coordinated by Coventry University.
The REACH Social Platform aims to offer a sustainable space for meeting, discussion and collaboration by all those with a stake in the field of culture and Cultural Heritage.
By showcasing concrete, participatory experiences and identifying good practice by means of the project’s pilots, a robust framework will be developed for building and sustaining a resilient European Cultural Heritage

The REACH international conference in Budapest will introduce the scope of the project, offering a great opportunity to discuss and compare successful examples of participatory processes and researches.

The conference aims to:
  • announce the start of the new REACH social platform,
  • present its research themes and their theoretical framework,
  • illustrate the mechanisms of participation,
  • and gather requirements, needs, and expectations from the users.

Successful examples of participatory processes coming from other initiatives, in the world, will be discussed, with contributions from keynote speakers.

Moreover, during the two days event, a dedicated poster sessions will be opened, where the participants can present their own projects. (link to call for poster)

Contribution by EC representatives is expected.
