In this interconnected era mobile devices are essential daily companions
of our life and ensure a fast and easy accessibility to any type of
information across and beyond national borders, especially among the
younger generations. Leveraging the potential of ICT tools is an
opportunity for the cultural sector, where it is more and more necessary
to reach more public and to promote widely events and artistic works to
remain competitive in the market, in front of a reduced public funding.
In this context, the archives certainly suffers a delay in the
adaptation to these new features of the cultural market and are still
less open to invest in digitization as a way to promote their heritage.
Fully aware of this opportunity and need, the CREARCH Project will bring
the archives closer to citizens through the development of a completely
new multilingual mobile app that will be available for installation in
mobile phones and tablets.
