Event description
The 3rd annual smARTplaces conference hosted by the Dortmunder U will showcase arts and cultural innovators from across the world.

About this Event

As the smARTplaces project comes to a close, we realised there are many stories to share about experiments, audiences, collaboration, failures and successes. For our third and final conference - SMARTPLACES - hosted by the Dortmunder U on March 5, 2020, we’re telling these stories by shining a spotlight on our colleagues from across the world.

This search for cultural professionals with shared experiences led us to the conference theme - a human experience of engaging with digital in the cultural and creative industries. Across the four tracks - Identity, Belonging, Access and Acceptance - you’ll hear from people with diverse backgrounds and professional experiences. From a museum in Sweden that wants to become more present in its city to a circus from Spain that’s re-discovering its identity. You’ll hear from a historian from a German museum ponder on just how digital we need to become and follow the journey of festival director from India who is determined to introduce culture into the day-to-day lives of citizens living in a bustling metropolis.

All these stories share a common thread - making sense of digital. The talks will inspire ideas that you can incorporate into your own professional practice. If you prefer a more hands-on approach, you can take part in a workshop on themes like wayfinding, setting up cultural labs and immersive storytelling.

SMARTPLACES recreates the open and inclusive atmosphere of our steering group meetings, when all multidisciplinary partners gathered to reflect on our experiments, ask questions and take deep dives into new themes. We invite you to do the same on March 5, 2020.

For updates follow us on Twitter and Facebook and sign up to our newsletter. We look forward to meeting you in Dortmund on March 5, 2020.
