The Little Carpathian Cultural Centre in Modra, together with the project partner Museumsmanagement Niederösterreich, started another project activity – Digitization of cultural heritage

The newly created digitization centre in Modra as well as the Museumsmanagement Niederösterreich will ensure the processing and archiving. The archive will contain high-quality scans and photographs of handicraft products with an emphasis on ceramic production, colour cards, details of urban and rural architecture, small sacral architecture, technical monuments, digitized maps, documents, historical photographs, embroidery and films.

Ceramic research and subsequent processing of the material is expected to be completed by 2020. The intentions of the staff of the digitization centre are very extensive, so we assume the long-term sustainability of the project.

The project of digitization and documentation is intended primarily for the professional public, but it has a very wide scope, so the processed material will be available to the professional public, students, the general public and individuals.

The project will cooperate with several cultural institutions, primarily museums located in the region, archives, cultural centres, libraries, PLA (protected landscape area) centre and self-government. We will invite regional and amateur historians, journalists, conservationists and landscapers to cooperation.
