The gathering will consist of two events: IMAGINES, where Multimedia and New technology laureates will be presented; and the core event, with its packed two-day schedule. Altogether 44 projects will be presented, coming from China, United States, Japan, India, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Vietnam, Russia and Europe. In addition to the global survey of best practice, the conference features rich social and cultural content organised with help of the local partner Dubrovnik Museums, all taking place in the Renaissance city centre of Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The conference is organised in partnership with EUROPA NOSTRA & the Endowment Fund of ICOM, with the support of the City of Dubrovnik and with sponsorship from Meyvaert Glass Engineering.
The audience, moderators-judges, and the keynote speakers will vote for “The Project of Influence 2017”, for each part of the programme. The two representatives of the winning projects will have the privilege of delivering the keynote speeches at the 2018 conference and will be invited to present their institution’s projects at the EXPONATEC fair in Cologne, in November 2017.
