Creative impulses for digital applications in art and culture.
How is technology changing culture? This year, several programmes are inviting creatives to initiate creative impulses for digital applications in art and culture in Vienna. The goal is to enhance and innovate offerings of cultural institutions and reach new target groups with the help of digital solutions.
Culture & Technology: The award-winning projects
TThe award-winning projects of our ideas competition Culture & Technology: Museum Focus have been selected. The 10 best digital concepts from Viennese museums receive prize money of 5,000 euros each.
The ideas range from participatory approaches to co-creating the museum programme with the help of AI and the blockchain, new inclusive access to collections and archives, to AR applications that turn the city into a museum.
The second stage of the funding competition is aimed at further developing the ideas into concrete projects. The deadline for submissions is 11 September 2022.
