Digital and Innovation
The digital strategy of the DRAC Hauts-de-France is based on the new possibilities offered by digital technology to boost the transmission of knowledge to a wide and varied audience.
The inclusion of this digital strategy in the previous State-Region Plan contracts (CPER) has made it possible to anchor its objectives in a regional reflection and to strengthen partnerships between the State and the regional authorities.
The objectives of the Digital Strategy are to:
- complement the measures implemented at national level by the Ministry of Culture
- develop a Culture and Digital axis specific to the regional territory
- respond to the need to strengthen research and development (R&D) in the field of New Technologies applied to Culture, while participating in the development of the digital economy (French Tech Network, Start-ups, Fab Labs, Laboratories, etc.), tourism and employment, and digital and cultural development
- increase access to heritage and culture.
Every year, since 2017, the DRAC has launched two calls for projects, which make it possible to select around 30 projects per year in order to:
- develop the supply of cultural resources through ICT and digital arts through the development of applications of digital tools or portals to disseminate and enhance cultural heritage and creations
- Supporting engineering and innovation initiatives that foster cooperation between industry stakeholders, in order to stimulate digital entrepreneurship in the cultural, artistic, educational and tourism sectors.
The winners present the projects the following year in the form of a public communication accompanied by workshops on the occasion of a Culture and Digital Regional Day » organised by the DRAC.
These documents and applications are intended to be included in the National online databases and/or aggregated on the portal Collections the Ministry of Culture but also on the sites of the partner local authorities (Regional Council, Departmental Councils, Municipalities...) or private institutions (Foundations, Learned Societies, Associations Law 1901...).
Hauts-de-France Collections is the regional component of the Collections search engine and provides access to nearly 250,000 items covering all regional arts and cultural fields.
The regional plan for digitisation and cultural dissemination is also part of the objectives set by the European Commission for the construction of a digital library Europeana ', a multilingual access point to all cultural contents of heritage and contemporary creation throughout Europe.
Finally, it participates in the implementation of the Micro-folies network:
Designed by architect Bernard Tschumi and inspired by the Folies du Parc de la Villette, the Micro-folies contribute to the democratization of culture: they house a digital museum that can be viewed for free on a giant screen, a fab lab, a stage space or a café (meeting space).
They make it possible to present a range of works distributed in France and around the world, and represent a formidable educational tool to accompany the journeys of young people towards art.
