Dr Gabi Arrigoni

Research Associate


I am a researcher with expertise in Digital Heritage, Digital Culture and New Media Art. My practice-based approach often involves design-led methodologies and curatorship.

I am a Research Associate on the EU-funded project Critical Heritages (CoHERE): performing and representing identities in Europe in which I investigate the role of digitally-enabled conversations in constructing heritage identities in Europe.

I have a background in Heritage Studies, Art History and Art Curatorship and previous professional experience in the museum and art publishing sectors.

My current research interests focus on the impact of digital culture and emerging technologies on heritage practices. In my work I combine desk-based and practice-based methods. The latter include curatorial and participatory formats such as design-led workshops, exhibitions, engagement activities, symposia and platforms of co-creation. 


I lead the module Digital Cultural Communication and the Cultural Sector.

In the past I have contributed lectures and seminars to the Masters courses in Creative Arts Practice and in Museums and Galleries Studies.
