    Closing note

    In this track you heard from the three initiators of the smARTplaces project Jasmin Vogel Kurt Eichler and Britta Lerch.

    They discussed the value of investing in collaborative experiments on an international level to boost local (digital) transformation processes within cultural institutions. What are the conditions necessary to kickstart and succeed in this process? And how do such complex projects navigate the politics of cultural funding and demands of all stakeholders?
