Hacking Culture Talks

8-5-15 19:00 - 8-5-15 21:00
Waag, Nieuwmarkt 4, 1012 CR Amsterdam

During Hacking Culture Bootcamp (from Europeana Space), about forty participants will dedicate three days at Waag to experiment with cross-media (or, transmedia), interactive concepts that may be suitable for applications in broadcasting and the heritage sector.

As part of this program, we're also organizing an evening event: Hacking Culture Talks.

Here, we'll talk with experts and the public about media strategies and the potential of cross-media, interactive concepts for broadcasters and museum sector. Which new technologies are available, and how can we come up with useful applications for them in these areas?

We'll start with practical examples by looking at new forms of storytelling and strategies to engage the public.

Speakers will include:

  • Wilko van Iperen is the head of the Digital & Innovation Division of the KRO-NCRV. In 2014, he was nominated for a Cross Media Award for the second time. He is also involved in the development and implementation of successful television programs.
  • Jane Finnis, of Culture24 in the UK, developed the app, VanGoYourself.com. Culture24 is an independent, non-profit company that exists to support the cultural sector to reach and connect with audiences. 
  • Simon Cronshow (REMIX Summits) discusses factors for success. He has years of experience in the field of cultural and technological entrepreneurship, and has been commissioned by the Tate, the Saatchi gallery, the Kids in Museums, and the Whitechapel Gallery.
