15 Jan - 16 Jan
Heritage and the Creative Industry
2nd Singapore Heritage Science Conference "Heritage poses the challenge of innovation in a new way: How does the new integrate with the old?" This was the key question raised by Helga Nowotny (co-founder and former president of the European Research Council) in her keynote address at the 1st Singapore Heritage Science Conference on Heritage science as a complex system: The embarrassment of complexity: A phase of transition?
Heritage is a state-of-the-art multidisciplinary domain that investigates and pioneers integrated action plans and solutions in response to, and in anticipation of, the challenges arising from cultural heritage issues in society. Heritage is closely linked to the history and identity of communities.
With so many heritage experts who document the human experiences of past generations and make this treasure available in the present digital era, in the 2nd Singapore Heritage Science Conference, we will focus on the creative industries "architecture, arts and antique markets, crafts, design (industrial, communication and fashion), publishing, film, video, and photography, radio and television, software, computer games and electronic publishing, advertising, music and the visual and performing arts".
We invited distinguished speakers with a record of blending heritage and innovation. The common denominator for all speakers is that they use inter- and trans- disciplinary methods to understand the systems they work in.Our goal is to enhance skills in academic research, critical analysis and interpretation while testing multimedia tools for data organization, visualization and performative manifestations in collaboration with the creative industry.
We warmly invite you to participate in what promises to be an exciting conference.
