Thank you all!
We hope you had an inspiring, productive and pleasant time at DISH2011. As soon as possible we will upload all presentations on this site. In the meanwhile you can read several reviews about DISH2011.
Business for Heritage
We all want to create value, but should we follow the money? What about our missions? And the social benefits our current business model delivers?
Co-creation and Crowdsourcing
How do you manage a crowd within a networked society, and how do you generate business using digital heritage?
How do you manage institutional change?
Building a New Public Space
Virtual meeting spaces for sharing knowledge on culture and history are set up by user communities. They partly replace traditional meeting spaces in heritage institutions. Will we be able to bring them together and build a new public space together?
The choice to dedicate an international conference to digital strategies for heritage has proved to be a valid one. With over 600 participants in 2009, the first DISH conference was an instant success. DISH2009 put topics like business model innovation, education and service oriented digitisation at the forefront.
The importance of these topics has only increased since that first conference, as can be seen in the digitisation policy of the European Commission. The DISH concept appealed to the Brazilian heritage community, and in September 2011, the Brazilian edition of the conference, DISH Brasil, has taken place. DISH and Europeana have formed a strategic alliance to provide a platform for archives, libraries, museums and other heritage institutions to conceive and discuss joint digital strategies.
On a national level, DISH2009 saw the launch of a Dutch community platform on business model innovation in cultural heritage. DISH2011 promises to be the leading international conference on future developments in digital heritage.
