Moving cultural experiences into the 21st century

As digital technology evolves and becomes increasingly invisible, new cultural experiences are also being developed. At the front line we find theatre companies and art collectives that transcend boundaries between a night out, concerts, film, theater, gaming and museum experiences. At the same time museums are beginning to explore immersive experiences, in order to enhance the story and the visitor’s bodily awareness. What exactly is an immersive cultural experience? What role does digital technology play? What challenges are there in terms of resources and need for new competences?

Join us for the seminar Immersive Experiences – What, Why and How? on June 9, at 10-15.30. The seminar takes place at the Nordiska museet / Nordic Museum in Stockholm. Our invited experts will give us three different perspectives on immersive experiences.

The seminar is a collaboration between IdeK and Nordiska museet / Nordic Museum.
