Purpose of the event is the unveiling of PLUGGY’s Social Media Platform, which enables citizens and professionals to actively contribute to the preservation and promotion of local cultural heritage. The platform, which was developed by an interdisciplinary consortium of nine partners from five EU countries, offers innovative tools and apps (i.e. 3D audio, augmented reality, geolocation and collaborative games) allowing the users to easily and interactively record their own experiences and knowledge about cultural heritage in their area and localities. The platform offers also curatorial tools, enabling them to produce and disseminate their experiences at a European level. During the event, a one-day Conference will be held, where PLUGGY participants and invited key-experts will discuss PLUGGY’s results as well as the latest technological advances in the field of participative culture at a European level, through several interactive presentations and live discussions. In addition, a parallel exhibition will showcase the PLUGGY Social Media Platform, Curatorial Tool and apps through exciting demonstrations and hands-on sessions.
During the Final Event the six winning apps of the PLUGGY App Challenge will be also presented and the final winner, who will win the additional award of 4.000E, will be announced.
Highlight of the event will be the live tour around Technopolis, where the participants will have the opportunity to experience through the PLUGGY apps, cultural heritage stories about the surrounding area, which is one of the most important historic areas of the city of Athens. Using PLUGGY’s platform, they will also be able to share their personal experiences and views. Participation to the PLUGGY Final Event is free but registration is obligatory due to the restricted number of seats.
