DISH (Digital Strategies for Cultural Heritage) is a new bi-annual international conference on digital heritage and the opportunities it offers to cultural organisations. It takes place for the first time on 9 & 10 December 2009.
Virtueel Platform has invited Matt Adams of internationally renowned group Blast Theory, to run a pre-conference workshop specially for the DISH delegates on 8 December. Blast Theory has focused most recently on new uses of GPS technology for non-commercial content in the public space using existing technology to new purposes. The one-day workshop will kick of with some insights in to Blast Theory's own projects and their relevance to the heritage field. The rest of the day is a workshop in which participants will be helped to devise new ways in which their own cultural content can be used to best advantage with new (mobile)technology.
