Experiencing History

Making history experienceable is a fascinating aspect. It allows people to feel a deeper connection with the past, through storytelling. By explaining genesis through digital visualisation and reconstruction, we can create a vivid picture of what life was like in the past and how events unfolded.

One of the most powerful ways to bring history to life is through storytelling. Stories have the power to touch people emotionally and take them on a journey into the past. By sharing personal stories and experiences of people who lived through history, we can gain a deeper understanding of events and the impact they had on individuals and communities.

Digital visualisation and reconstruction play an essential role in making history experienceable. Using advanced technologies such as 3D modelling, virtual reality and augmented reality, historical sites and events can be recreated. This enables people to virtually walk around historic buildings, cities and landscapes, and experience the atmosphere and architecture of the past.

A particularly valuable aspect of making history experienceable is highlighting personal stories. It is important to highlight not only the major historical events, but also the stories of ordinary people who were affected by those events. By collecting personal testimonies and stories, we can provide a human perspective on history and its impact on individuals and communities.

Heritage plays a crucial role in making history experienceable. It includes historical monuments, artefacts, documents and traditions that embody our past. Digital technologies offer new opportunities to preserve heritage and make it accessible to a wide audience. With the help of digital archives, online exhibitions and interactive platforms, people all over the world can learn about heritage and feel involved in history.

Within this cluster, you will work on projects around making history experienceable through storytelling, digital visualisation, reconstruction, heritage and/or personal stories.
