Cultural Heritage is as an essential instrument for social cohesion nowadays. An increasing number of Cultural Institutions seeks to address the needs of communities engaging them through participatory initiatives so as to strengthen the relationships.

#CultureLabs analyses ingredients and proposes recipes to facilitate the involvement of immigrants communities and disadvantaged groups that are disconnected from institutional Cultural Heritage.

#CultureLabs investigates and proposes the use of digital services and tools for facilitating the access to Cultural Heritage through tailor-made novel experiences, creative reuse, enrichment and co-creation.
