eCult Dialogue Day - Dubrovnik, Croatia
The first eCult Dialogue Day was held on 19 September in Dubrovnik, with the collaboration of the Best in Heritage event. Prof. Tomislav Sola, initiator of the Best in Heritage event, emphasised the need of bringing technology to museums and appreciated that the first eCult Dialogue Day offered an initial step towards a continuous and fruitful cooperation between ICT and museums.
The morning session gave an interesting insight in museums already using ICT for experiencing their collections and the technologies available to enhance and access cultural collections: amongst them, the "pathfinder" of the CHESS project, the PATH project as well as the access to intangible heritage through the new i-Treasures project.
For more details, please have a look at The eCultDD participants' package that gives a short CV of the speakers and the programme.
In the afternoon, three Round Tables discussed pertinent topics for cultural heritage owners:
- 3D Apps for mobile art consumption?
- How can Social Media attract – real – visitors?
- Storytelling: a means to reflect the past and project the future?
The results of these Round Tables will be soon displayed here. If you want to know how you can participate, contact us.
