AboutApart from my studies in social and political sciences, I am also certified in cultural management and I have attended various seminars on the creative reuses of digital cultural heritage.
By participating in a few research projects, I familiarised myself with using open accessed digital archives and repositories – and gradually, apart from their scientific and educational value, I discovered the creative possibilities offered by the rights to reuse, modify and remix their content. Since then, I take initiatives and actively participate in various events aiming at the engagement of the general public with the extension, enlargement and creative reuses of the digital commons.
