The CREAMARE project - “Linking creativity, culture and media technologies in the transnational co-production of digital interactive products for the communication of maritime and underwater cultural heritage” is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme. The project started on June 2022, aims to creating a trans-national and cross-sectorial collaboration framework in with cultural institutions, scientific and research bodies, creative professionals, and technology experts can co-produce Culture and Creative Applications and digital products to communicate, disseminate and promote Cultural Heritage (with a special focus on the Underwater Cultural Heritage), and, simultaneously, raise awareness about relevant social problems such as pollution and other environmental threats that affect the oceans. The consortium is composed of 3D Research Srl (Italy) as project coordinator, the Soprintendenza Nazionale per il Patrimonio Culturale Subacqueo (Italy), the University of Cadiz (Spain), NOVENA (Croatia), Atlantis Consulting (Greece), Pragma IoT (Greece), and Pro Progressione (Hungary).
The CREAMARE framework will be tested by the publication of two different open calls: the first one will be addressed to creative professionals that want to co-produce, together with partners, a serious game focused on the Underwater Cultural Heritage; the second one will be addressed to cultural institutions that want to participate in training and capacity building activities focused on digital skills.
In addition to the training program, the selected institutions will have the possibility to include their underwater site in the serious game that will be released at the end of the project.
