Symposium »Digital Visions in Art and Culture«
Tue, October 20, 2015 , Symposium

The digital revolution is challenging culture, but also offering lots of new options. For this reason, we would like to take a closer look at the wishes and requirements of the cultural institutions of Baden-Württemberg in the digital era with you as part of a conference.
We invite you, as the representative of an important cultural facility, to take part in the workshops, moderated specialist fora and plenary speeches. Talk to experts about the best cases and best practices from the fields of archives, libraries and museums on October 20, 2015.

Please note that participation is limited. You must register until October 16, 2015, at: anmeldung_divis2015@zkm.de
