C4Education – Virtual Lab Develops Digital Heritage Tools With Europe in Mind
On December 15th, 2022 the #9 ICARUS online lecture will be held by Gustavo Nogueira de Menezes about the project C4Education!
“C4Education project partners are developing a virtual lab for digital tools to advance knowledge transfer in the field of cultural heritage, bundle these tools and offer them commercially to small and medium-sized museums, tourism agencies and other cultural institutions.” More information.
About the speaker:
Gustavo Nogueira researches temporalities, narratives and systems about time
Founder of the Torus Company and the Temporality Lab, he works with a transdisciplinary community around the world that seeks from a decolonial perspective to be in sync with the multiple temporalities of our planet. Brazilian from the Amazon region, he has lived in Amsterdam since 2017, where he is a member of the Time Machine Organization and currently coordinates C4EDUCATION, a project about education on cultural heritage at the University of Jena, Germany. He has already carried out education projects with the main companies and leading vehicles in Latin America – Globo, Google, Netflix, Nubank, Santander, Spotify – addressing topics such as the spirit of time, change, ancestry, the future, speculative design and decoloniality.

ICARUS Convention #30:
‘Archives and Traces of Migration’
The ICARUS Convention #30 will take place from 3rd to 5th of May 2023 in Sittard and in Maastricht, Netherlands!
Registration is closed.
The convention’s thematic priority
Thematic priority of the convention will be how archives in (and outside) Europe deal with migration and especially with the archival material regarding the migration. Do they own any materials about migration, do they actively collect them? Are these materials being made visible (and how)? Are archives working together with universities to scientifically research and evaluate them? And with museums to present them?
Migration is a theme that is very important in our days, but migration is, of course, of all times. Traces of it are therefore visible in archives throughout Europe. We will see and hear examples how these kinds of archives have been handled in the past and how they are handled now. Can we learn from each other?
There will be time to present and discuss the theme (participants of the Creative Europe-project AToM (Archives and Traces of Migration) will take the lead in this). There will be discussion, exchange, the sharing of experiences and the development of possible solutions and strategies will be explored.
But also other projects in which archives in Europe are involved, like the TimeMachines, will be invited to present themselves. Also projects of the Icarus-community (like Monasterium, Matricula and the very successful Topotheque) will be given the chance to give an update of their progress at this meeting.
The convention’s structure
The convention will act as a sharing place where professionals and user communities will have the possibility to present, discuss and share their ideas, visions and concrete projects, with the aim to prepare new partnerships, as well as the planning and implementation of possible new projects.
During the three days of the convention there will be the possibility to do presentations, workshops, discussions, ‘exchange-tables’ and ‘cooperation-tables’.
Registration is closed.
