Digital heritage


The regional workshop will highlight the potential of cutting-edge technologies for cultural heritage protection and promotion among young and non-traditional audiences. More specifically, the workshop aims at:

  • Equipping partner youth organizations committed to and engaged in cultural heritage protection and promotion with new skills, knowledge and approaches to represent, document and make endangered cultural heritage more visible, and to take action;
  • Giving unique opportunities to partner youth organizations to upgrade their work in this field, by highlighting opportunities offered by virtual environments ;
  • Sharing and analyzing successful experiences from the Arab region and beyond using the most advanced technologies (augmented reality, virtual experiences, 3D simulation, gaming) to document and raise awareness of cultural heritage among youth, through mixed educative and training techniques;
  • Strengthening networking and mutualize resources between creative young entrepreneurs and youth organizations for the promotion of heritage as a fundamental prerequisite of democracy, a pillar of freedom of expression, and an essential element for the wellbeing of societies.


The workshop will benefit from the insights of renowned experts, professionals and researchers working on cultural heritage representation, youth mobilization and youth-led art mediation. It will also benefit from the expertise of the Virtual Experience Company, which has been developing 3D and Virtual Reality experiences during the past several years notably on a number of sites inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List such as Westminster Hall in London, UK, and Bahla Fort in Oman. In addition, the discussions will benefit from the crossed experiences of key youth organizations with the relevant experts of cultural heritage protection in the Arab region.
