#wissengeteilt –

Museums in South Lower Saxony realize digital strategy together

The Foundation for UNESCO World Heritage in the Harz is taking part in the project #wissengeteilt (knowledge shared) together with the Upper Harz Mining Museum, the CistercianMuseum Walkenried Monastery and other members of the South Lower Saxony Museum Chain. This is part of the programme KULTUR.GEMEINSCHAFTEN (culture.communities), which supports digital content production in cultural institutions. In the course of #wissengeteilt the institutions will implement their jointly developed digital strategy, making use of synergies in addressing their target groups under the unifying narrative of "knowledge". Together they will tell the stories of historic and current knowledge production in South Lower Saxony – digitally of course, via the digital channels of the Museum Chain like their channel on Instagram.
