Volunteers heading out with a few of the night’s iconic orange balloons

In 2013, the Digital Humanities team in the Long Room Hub led a successful application to the European Commission Marie Curie Researcher Night programme to host a one night festival of research and researchers for the people of Dublin. Over 7,000 people came in to the walls of Trinity that night to experience a wide range of presentations, demonstrations and interactive experiences. Although not limited to DH, there was a strong representation of the TCD digital humanities projects and people there on the night, including the cornerstone eCloud exhibit in the Exam Hall, Cultura’s “Explore your cultural heritage,” a live 3-D archaeological scanning demo, and the crowd-sourced open experiment on what cultural heritage means to us, “Tag, You’re It!”
