What roles can new technologies and digital reconstruction play in safeguarding the world’s cultural heritage? Sites around the world are threatened by time, natural disasters, and conflict. This panel of museum professionals and tech leaders explores how technology, culture, and entertainment can converge to raise awareness of social issues and turn museum visitors into caring citizens of the world. Case studies show how technology, such as the immersive projections and VR experiences in Age Old Cities, can bring people closer to history. Speakers include Aurelie Clemente-Ruiz of the Arab World Institute in Paris, Yves Ubelmann of the technology company Iconem, Deborah Papiernik of the video game developer Ubisoft, and Armelle Arrou of UNESCO. The conversation is moderated by Simon Rettig, Assistant Curator for Islamic Art at the Freer and Sackler.
