ReACH (Reproduction of Art and Cultural Heritage) Dialogue

Welcome to the ReACH dialogue blog!

Launched at UNESCO in May 2017, ReACH is a global initiative that explores how to re-think our approach to reproducing, storing and sharing works of art and cultural heritage in the digital age.

In this blog, we will go the behind-the-scenes of the global consultation which led us to the production of the new ReACH Declaration.

We invite you to join this global discussion on #ReACHDialogue.
