SPICE

Social cohesion, Participation, and Inclusion through Cultural Engagement

The aim of the SPICE project is to develop new technologies and methods that enable groups at risk of exclusion to actively participate in culture through a process we term citizen curation.

Citizens will be supported in taking part in curatorially-inspired activities such as collecting, storytelling and exhibition design. The technology developed in the project will enable citizen groups to share their own collective view on life through culture and heritage, as well as understand and appreciate the alternative cultural viewpoints of other groups.

The process of citizen curation will be co-designed and evaluated through case studies in five countries: Finland, Ireland, Spain, Italy and Israel. In each case study a museum serves as a hub to support citizen curation with specific target groups including older people, asylum seekers, young people living with illness, Deaf people and children from different religious and secular communities.

The SPICE project is supported by the European Commission Horizon 2020 Programme.
