This report has been submitted by Lund University (Sweden) as deliverable D4.1 within the framework of H2020 project "SO-CLOSE: Enhancing Social Cohesion through Sharing the Cultural Heritage of Forced Migrations" Grant No. 870939. This deliverable addresses relevant steps and considerations for the implementation of the three digital sharing tools developed in WP3 of the SO-CLOSE projects in the four locations of the cultural institutions. The implementation process will follow a strategy agreed upon by the consortium that emphasizes the role of curatorship each cultural institution will take on and highlights three specific areas of interest: Firstly, it is highly relevant for curators to make use of storytelling and embed chosen content in engaging narratives that attract audiences and create relevant spaces of meaning-making. The guidelines for storytelling emphasize the use of objects and narratives and how to embed those in digital storytelling. Secondly, for the SO-CLOSE context, cultural memory and the connection of past and present narratives are a focal point of our cultural heritage-making endeavours. How to create these connections especially in a context addressing sensitive and possibly triggering memories and narratives is also addressed in the form of guidelines. Thirdly, the SO-CLOSE project aims to create inclusive and accessible spaces, both online and offline. Therefore, the deliverable offers an overview of accessibility features relevant for SO-CLOSE activities and invites all cultural institutions to consider their approaches from an accessible point of view. Further sources for accessibility requirements and features are listed as well. The deliverable aims at informing the tool implementation process and offering actionable steps as well as theoretically informed considerations relevant for cultural institutions to take on the role of curator throughout the process.
