The WEAVE project is excited to invite you to our final conference which will explore the connections between tangible and intangible heritage, cultural communities and the process of digital transformation of cultural heritage organisations.

The programme will open up with several keynote speakers, continue with presentations of the main project outcomes and of the effort in building the capacity of cultural heritage institutions for digital transformation and better engagement with communities. The conference programme of talks will be streamed live.

After the talks, for attendees in Girona a networking lunch and a digital exhibition will give the floor to all participants to engage in a lively discussion following the inspiration drawn from the programme.

To conclude the event, an interesting workshop about photogrammetry digitization will illustrate modern techniques to create accurate and high quality 3D models of cultural heritage objects, with a particular focus on heritage photography.

>> Location: Centre Cultural La Mercè. Pujada de la Mercè, 12, 17004 Girona.
