How and why do technology businesses (start-ups and major groups) invest in cultural and heritage projects? Where do technological innovations lie in these fields?
These are the types of questions for which the ArtTech Forum was created. The annual event, bring together an international community of researchers, engineers, scientists and representatives of the cultural and economic sectors at seminars and round-table discussions.
From the presentation of projects carried out by large museums, heritage sites and universities, to presentations that showcase the ever-closer links between culture and entertainment and the new relationships between the art market and technology, the event provide participants with a unique opportunity to create ties that will eventually help develop new projects.
Launched during the first Forum in 2017, the ArtTech Prize welcomes young entrepreneurs from the cultural and creative industries. This initiative also serves to illustrate new models of financing and investment in the cultural sector.
The ArtTech Forum 2021 will take place on September 28. Due to the ongoing pandemic, a hybrid format – on-site and online – is planned. It will also integrate the 5th ArtTech Prize.
