The Katip-Celebi Newton Fund Project

Plural Heritages of Istanbul

Co-ordinated by Professor Chris Whitehead, this project seeks to develop new valorisations of the Istanbul Land (Theodosian) Walls, working with communities to co-produce both situated and web-based, public-facing digital heritage interpretation resources that reflect non-official, hitherto unauthorised understandings of the Walls and their environs.

The project also builds capacity, in line with the aims of the Newton Fund, through modelling heritage management/interpretation practicedigital technologies and community engagement within the heritage sector.
