This presentation describes the use of digital tools in the development of platforms for the promotion of arts and culture, with emphasis on the framework used for categorizing and contextualising artworks/artefacts. The presentation draws on the CREAMS project, which employs XR as a fulcrum for enhancing more meaningful engagement with contemporary art virtual exhibitions through curatorial innovations as well as the inclusion of multimodal contextual material. Frameworks for creating a nexus of resources that add context to exhibited art are developed, with respective data classification approaches. Moreover, we will discuss the inclusion of artefacts’ aspects related to intangible heritage, such as pertinent narratives, histories and functions.

This event is designed to accommodate online format using Zoom platform. In order to secure your spot please follow the instructions on the Eventbrite page.
