Der Tag des offe­nen Denkmals® becomes dig­i­tal

iRights.Lab supports the German Foundation for Monument Protection

We are providing our expertise in both content and organization for the nationwide coordination of Germany's largest cultural event, the „Tag des offenen Denkmals®“, which will take place on September 13, 2020. The German Foundation for Monument Protection (DSD) has included us in its team for the comprehensive range of technology on offer.

Where nor­mal­ly mil­lions of vis­i­tors through­out Ger­many expe­ri­ence the approx­i­mate­ly 8,000 mon­u­ments, craftsmen’s and mer­chants’ hous­es, cas­tles, church­es, indus­tri­al plants, ships and archae­o­log­i­cal sites at close quar­ters, this year the health of the par­tic­i­pants is the top pri­or­i­ty. After all, the Coro­na pan­dem­ic has upset our every­day lives. So the doors of the mon­u­ments in the ana­log world remain closed for the most part. At the same time, how­ev­er, the dig­i­tal gates are being opened wide and we are help­ing to open them wide.

This is pri­mar­i­ly a mat­ter of answer­ing gen­er­al or very spe­cif­ic tech­ni­cal ques­tions that arise on the part of the mon­u­ment own­ers, munic­i­pal insti­tu­tions or asso­ci­a­tions. This is done via a spe­cial­ly estab­lished and super­vised tech­ni­cal hot­line, which is espe­cial­ly designed to pro­vide assis­tance in case of uncer­tain­ties in video, audio or photo pro­duc­tion.

In addi­tion, there are fur­ther online offers for plan­ning, imple­men­ta­tion and fol­low-up of dig­i­tal offers, which also focus on legal ques­tions con­cern­ing data pro­tec­tion and copy­right. From now on, online cours­es will be offered for this pur­pose.

A hand­book, which was cre­at­ed in coop­er­a­tion with DSD and is avail­able for down­load, pro­vides an overview of tech­ni­cal and legal tips for imple­ment­ing dig­i­tal her­itage for­mats in an attrac­tive way.

We sup­port the foun­da­tion in enabling the orga­niz­ers to cre­ate their own dig­i­tal con­tri­bu­tion to the Open Mon­u­ment Day.

All infor­ma­tion and reg­is­tra­tion options for the online offer­ings are avail­able at hot­line can be reached under the num­ber 0228 9091 — 477 always on Mon­day, Wednes­day and Fri­day between 10.00 and 12.00 a.m
