The European projects SO-CLOSE and TRACTION present their digital and artistic tools to combat social exclusion

Both initiatives have been funded through the European Union's Horizon 2020 program and share the purpose of contributing to consolidating museums and cultural institutions as spaces for sustainable digital cultural co-creation.
The event is open to the public and is especially aimed at people linked to cultural and artistic organizations and institutions or from the social sphere and public administrations.
About the projects
- SO-CLOSE, focused on the refugee experience, has developed open access digital tools that can be used for educational or documentation purposes. Versions of the tools made with genuine migratory information and experiences will be presented at the event, co-created by professionals from the academic and digital world, and refugees and migrants who determined their own needs, expectations and possibilities when choosing the tools to develop. Check out the SO-CLOSE Memory Center Platform: https://bit.ly/socloseMCP
- TRACTION, for its part, explored the use of technology as a critical element in the co-creation of operas between professionals and diverse communities. Two main technological tools have been developed: The Co-Creation Space, a tool to foster participation, interaction and discussion during the co-creation process, and the Co-Creation Stage, a tool to enable real-time opera performances from different locations and scenarios.
