see the past, imagine the future
Connected Culture and Natural Heritage in a Northern Environment (CINE) was a collaborative digital heritage project between 9 partners and 10 associated partners from Norway, Iceland, Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland between 2017-2020.
CINE transformed people’s experiences of outdoor heritage sites through technology, building on the idea of “museums without walls”. New digital interfaces such as augmented reality, virtual world technology, and easy to use apps brought the past alive, allowed us to visualise the effects of the changing environment on heritage sites, and helped us to imagine possible futures.
Behind the scenes CINE developed content management toolkits - enabling curators, archivists, historians, individuals and communities to make innovative heritage projects to create unique on-site and off-site customer experiences in specific locations.
More broadly CINE explored the social, economic and political role of heritage within our remote communities and developed best practice to shape relevant environmental policies.
The project was funded by the Northern and Arctic Periphery Programme (ERDF).
