Work package 5 -Heritage management and citizen participation in a multi-cultural world

This theme will contribute to achieve a deeper understanding of the processes involved in the generation, appropriation and use of heritage. Social actors and relationships give meaning to things, including heritage; for this reason they must be taken into account as the starting point for the production of meaning and contents in heritage research and valorisation, as well as in touristic and cultural industries.

This WP will undertake research and actions that will provide PhD students with the following skills:

1/Identify when and how the public both uses and produces heritage, in other words, to explore how the public becomes a heritage ‘prosumer’.

2/Improve the heritage management of the future by way of a full comprehension of the public dimension of heritage.

3/Replace the current mainstream linear concept of heritage with another that is open, participative and collaborative, includes the public and thereby also contributes to the process of constructing social trust through heritage.

4/Align heritage research and management with society, encouraging processes that support the appropriation of heritage by the public and the active involvement of multiple agents, social co-production and co-participation in heritage.

5/Stimulate a new relationship between heritage and innovation, and the cultural and heritage industries, by incorporating them into new models of open innovation based on active public involvement.
