CULTURAL HERITAGE REMIXJAM
taylor digital studio, tate, UK
in this pilot research project led by kat braybrooke in partnership with mozilla, tate learning and the artist luca damiani, the aim was to develop a shared platform of knowledge about how creative practices could promote digital literacy, in ways that linked cultural heritage with new technologies.
together, we experimented with a diverse array of digital and material mediums, from open source tools to critical making interventions, to see how publics could engage with cultural collections in the tradition of open access, remix and reuse cultures.
project outputs included a design research workshop series that explored open source tools with the tate collective youth group, and a customised teaching kit for educators that featured hands-on activities for both youth and adult learners, which inspired remix challenges and other projects at museums around the world, from MoMA to the portland art museum.
