Non-Governmental & Non-Profit Organisation for Digital Cultural Heritage
WHO WE ARE
Heritage Management e-Society (HERMeS) is a non-for-profit organization dedicated on cultural heritage and ICT tools. HERMeS is an official Member Organization of Europa Nostra, aiming to document, rescue, manage, and disseminate all tangible and intangible aspects of Cultural Heritage, inside historical settlements around the world. Using all innovative digital tools available, HERMeS aims to offer accessibility of heritage to all social groups and ages, using innovative information technology and digital applications.
WHAT WE DO
The two main pillars of HERMeS focus on:
The documentation of both Tangible and Intangible aspects of Heritage sites, using & design innovative IT tools
The design of hybrid educational courses (both digital and physical), using all open-source data
HERMeS consists of a multidisciplinary group of experts that work inside collective prototypes of projects, engaging communities in participation and cultivating local awareness. The research aspect focuses on good practices regarding the preservation and rescue of Cultural Heritage through restoration, conservation, and documentation, either in its material form or its immaterial qualities. The target is the design of a specific conservation plan for each documentation project.
Purpose of HERMeS
HERMeS aims to record, preserve, manage and disseminate tangible and intangible Cultural Heritage in all its forms and manifestations with the help of technology and digital applications.
The city as a work of art
Historic Buildings and Monuments are part of this huge art collection. Therefore, HERMeS differentiates by approaching Cultural Heritage as tangible and intangible Cultural Relations that emerge in a city.
To whom is it addressed to?
HERMeS addresses all institutions (Municipalities, Regions, NGOs, and Chambers) that are interested in saving their monuments, promoting the cultural value of their place, and aiming to motivate citizens to sustain participatory cultural development.
Who are the members?
HERMeS has been created by a team of creative people who want to help protect and promote cultural heritage, in a pan-European and global dimension. For this purpose, a Registry of Friends of HERMeS has been created, which consists of excellent professionals in the field of Culture, working in actions and projects of HERMeS.
