The key aims of the Smart Culture Conference 2017 are to:
|• explore new roads that emerge when researchers from the science, culture and arts and museum community join forces;|
• offer inspiration;
• share knowledge and experience.
Over the past years the organising partners have invested in innovative research programmes (e.g. Smart Culture – Arts and Culture [in Dutch] and Museum Grants) to further cooperation between science, museums, culture and arts. Academic and artistic knowledge as well as science generated through museum researchers will offer new perspectives. Various topics will be addressed by researchers of the current projects sharing their insights on themes such as ‘knowledge and (re)cognition’, ‘society and narratives’, ‘music and (renewed) audience involvement stimulating active participation in a changing society’ or ‘makers and discourse’. At the conference all presenters will be requested to focus on the fundamental research question of their projected and/or already accomplished research project.
International keynote speakers reflect on the artistic research landscape in the Netherlands from an international perspective, researchers share their insights and present their projects and finally the public is invited to participate in plenary sessions.
The ‘Exploring Integrated Arts & Culture Research’ – Smart Culture Conference 2017 welcomes researchers from universities and universities of applied sciences in arts and culture, professionals from museums and heritage institutions, policy makers, and other relevant societal partners.
