DigiFolk: Digitizing the Folktales of a City – Sharing the Wisdom of the Other

DigiFolk: Digitizing the Folktales of a City – Sharing the Wisdom of the Other

The ultimate goal of the DigiFolk is to showcase through a diverse set of folktales our common humanity and collective EU cultural identity. By collecting, curating, digitizing and sharing the cultural products, DigiFolk aims to give voice to communities, which hold a minority status in European societies.As such, the project addresses the Erasmus + general goal of “raising awareness on and understanding the European Union context, notably as regards the common EU values, the principles of unity and diversity, as well as their cultural identity, cultural awareness and their social and historical heritage”.

By allowing diverse stories to be heard, the project hopes to address the problem of long-standing prejudices in European societies, that are partially produced due to exposure to only single narratives favouring the dominant cultures and demoting those cultures that are willingly or unwillingly othered.
