Digital Transformation. How to design the digital future in culture

The digital transformation in arts and culture is advancing rapidly, offering new opportunities for participation, connection, and insights. The 2024 event aims to explore sustainable and relevant changes in the digitization of art and culture. How can research results be made sustainable and transferred from research projects to long-lasting applications? We will examine and discuss approaches and solutions on how digital technologies can help reinterpret and interconnect art and cultural assets in both their processes and final products.

The interdisciplinary digital humanities event brings together international experts, doctoral students, advanced researchers, and cultural heritage institutions. It provides a unique opportunity for scholars and researchers to discuss multifaceted perspectives of the digital transformation, to broaden their horizons of digital practices and humanities methodologies.

Organized in collaboration with the University of Basel, DH-CH Digital Humanities Switzerland. With the participation of Bibliotheca Hertziana, DARIAH-IT, Galleria Borghese, UniversitĂ  Ca’ Foscari
