The notion of heritage covers a wide range of fields, from ecological niches, to archives, works of art or ancient objects, but also more conceptual objects and "works of the mind" that do not necessarily have a physical manifestation.
Since two decades, we explore digital creative opportunities for cultural transmission, pedagogy and museography.
From Reunion Island to Brussels, with local associations, museums, producers, historical monument keepers & public schools, we dig into physical & immaterial heritage and, humbly, contribute to provide simple yet accurate toolboxes for science, education and preservation.
