is a 3 years Horizon 2020 research project under grant agreement No 870743 coordinated by with a group of 9 partners from technological, social, and cultural sectors. The project promotes social cohesion through collaborative, heritage-related tools that provide inclusive access to tangible and intangible cultural heritage and, at the same time, facilitate encounters, discussions, and interactions between communities at risk of social exclusion. These tools will empower communities of people with the possibility of welding together their fragmented experiences and memories into compelling and geolocalized storylines using new personalized digital content linked to the pre-existent European Cultural Heritage. The methodology as well as the mobile app of MEMEX will allow the communities to tell their stories and to claim their rights and equal participation in European society.
The target communities of MEMEX are intermediaries from the socio-cultural sector, working with socially fragile people that are systematically blocked from various cultural opportunities. To work with those people, MEMEX deploys three pilots to analyze different expectations: migrant women in Barcelona (Spain), Portuguese first and second-generation migrants in Lisbon (Portugal), and inhabitants in priority neighborhoods in the 19th district of Paris (France).
