Cultural Heritage Institutions and Immersive Technologies: Monetisation and Copyright

The zeitgeist of this century and the foreseeable future is not only to celebrate humanity’s cultural heritage but to also preserve and maintain it for future generations, whilst ensuring its current accessibility to the public. A majority of cultural heritage institutions, whether public or private, commercial or non-commercial, are committed to digitising their analogue-based collections in order to enable their traditional function of preservation of heritage, as well as to facilitate a new digital research environment. Current projects between such heritage institutions and the technology sector show how Virtual Reality (VR) and other immersive technologies can successfully serve the needs of this sector. This seminar explores the feasibility and consequences in relation to such collaborations, with particular emphasis on copyright. The seminar is part of a project being conducted by Queen Mary, Univ. of London and Goldsmiths, Univ. of London, in collaboration with several UK heritage institutions.
