eCult Winter Stage 8-9 December 2014, Athens, Greece

Together with Dejan Pestotnik, eCultValue project manager at the Association for Culture and Education KIBLA, and photographer Matej Kristovič we particepated on the eCult Winter Stage “Kore what is your story? Advancing Cultural Experience through the use of ICT”. The event was held on 8 and 9 December 2014 at the Acropolis Museum in Athens, Greece, as a continuation of the eCultValue International Summer Stage 2014 from Maribor, Slovenia.

A large number of European projects related to ICT in heritage was presented. Some of them will be published as Success Stories in both printed and electronic version of the project book. In order to provide addtional material for the book, video and photo documentation as well as short interviews with some of the eCult Experts and eCult Ambassadors were recorded.

After the event our team wisited the Acropolis and the National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST) where the Andreas Angelidakis’ exhibition titled Every End is A Beginning is shown from 14 May 2014 till 11 January 2015.

Related to the last conference of the eCultValue project (1 February 2013  31 January 2015), I would like to borrow the quotation from the Four Quartets (T. S. Eliot, 1943) used at the exhibition:

What we call the beginning is often the end
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
The end is where we start from.

Andreas Angelidakis’ exhibition is actually one of the last at the EMST old building as the museum is moving to a new location, an industrial building of the former Fix brewery.

The eCultValue project is co-funded by the FP7 program of the European Commission.
