« The Rising Tide of Public Participation in Cultural Heritage Preservation :

Once limited to the domain of stuffed shirts and leather-bound club chairs, cultural heritage preservation has emerged into a more public, participatory forum. With the rapid rise of online heritage crowdsourcing and crowdfunding, broad-based public participation in heritage preservation is exploding. This paper will highlight recent cultural heritage preservation projects around the globe that utilize crowdsourcing and crowdfunding to tap into public participation, consciousness and coffers. It will also examine the effects of this participation on the heritage field as well as on the participating public. »
