At the end of January, the Second All Staff Meeting of the Euroepana Creative project took place at Culture24 in the lovely English seaside town of Brighton. Partners used the meeting to focus on the upcoming tasks and activities of the last stage of project. In two highly-motivated days they gave Workpackage updates, had fruitful discussions about the Content Re-Use Framework and started judging the potential winner(s) of the final Design Challenge.
Europeana Labs, which had its start shortly after the First Europeana Creative All Staff Meeting, reported on their spectacular performance: the site already has 2,218 registered API keys, 18 blog posts and more than 111,000 pageviews in total!
One highlight of the first day was the presentation of the Design Pilot. This digital “live” similarity tool called “Culture Cam” uses a web camera to recognize a colour, a shape or a pattern and then matches this with cultural heritage objects in Europeana. Try it out yourself!
