INNOVATE HERITAGE - International Conference Conversation between Arts and Heritage (participation)

Through lectures, panel discussions, exhibitions, performances, screenings and workshops, Innovate Heritage provides a platform to explore relationships and foster dialogue, promote creative approaches to theoretical and practical issues, and to enhance collaboration between the arts and heritage.

Based out of the World Heritage Studies program at the Brandenburgische Technische Universität (BTU) Cottbus, Germany, the function of this conference is to jump from a foundational knowledge base of UNESCO World Heritage into an expanded, tactile, and exploratory perspective, looking at the subtexts of heritage in collaboration with the arts and the benefits of mutual collaboration.

While the arts and heritage are both connected within the cultural sector, a strong trans/interdisciplinary approach is needed in order to further examine the shared values and elements of each in imagination, innovation, and processes of constructing cultural identity as well as values and meaning in our lived environments.

NEW "eCult Ambassadors" concept will be presented by Kaja Antlej and Dejan Pestotnik under the topic "New Technology and Art as Tools for Heritage Audience Development/Accessibility".
