Estonian Presidency conference: „Cultural Heritage 3.0: Audience and access in digital era“

Within the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, July 2017, Tartu, cultural heritage conference “Cultural Heritage 3.0: Audience and Access in the Digital Era”.


The conference focuses on access to culture and audience inclusion and development with the help of digital means in the digital era, which is also one of the most important topics in culture during the Estonian Presidency. The conference will discuss how the development of digital technologies has changed the way in which audiences access culture, how cultural content is created and consumed. What is the role of culture and cultural heritage in building stronger communities and a more cohesive society? How to place the audience in the centre of a cultural institution’s work and how to develop cultural institutions’ capabilities? We will take a look at how cultural heritage could be connected to social innovation and economic development. There will also be discussion about reforming copyright laws and how that, in turn, will impact access to cultural content. The conference will include practical workshops and field trips. The keynote speaker of the conference is Prof. Pier Luigi Sacco, from IULM University of Milano, special advisor to Commissioner Tibor Navracsics at the European Commission during the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.
