PLUGGY @ 2nd Summer School “Rural Space as Cultural Heritage”

Our partner PIOP presented PLUGGY and its crucial role in the safeguarding and promotion of local cultural heritage to the students of the 2nd Summer School “Rural Space as Cultural Heritage”, organised by the Directorate of Modern Cultural Heritage of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports, in Dimitsana (Arcadia, Peloponnese), Greece on the 23rd July 2019. On the next day, the students participated in a dedicated workshop, through which they had the opportunity to curate digital stories about the cultural, societal and environmental transformations of Dimitsana through time on PLUGGY’s Geolocation App, created by Clio Muse. The students shared their thoughts and enthusiasm regarding the application as contributors of cultural content/stories, evaluated their experience and provided valuable feedback, as part of the pilot phase of PLUGGY that takes place in PIOP’s Open-Air Water Power Museum in Dimitsana, Silversmithing Museum in Ioannina and Environment Museum of Stymphalia in Greece, as well as in East Slovakian Museum of Kosice, Slovakia throughout this summer.
