Abstract
This thesis looks into remix practices as a way to engage with cultural heritage in the digital age. The research explores themes of open knowledge, intellectual property and remix culture, through media theories, case studies and interviews. Remix Party is an idea of shared experience of remix, it is a way to discover cultural heritage and take ownership of it through its direct manipulation. The project is a design attempt to make the material of Finnish digital archives more accessible. This was done by designing a narrative environment to introduce people to the subject matter and a digital tool for remixing images from the archives of Helsinki City Museum.
