The main purpose of this workshop is to explore how authenticity and digital entertainment can coexist in contemporary museums.
Although museums have the potential and the mission to present knowledge in authoritative yet enjoyable ways, they are often struggling to balance their traditional rigour with the requirements of a changing society.
We suggest that a balance between authenticity and entertainment can be achieved through partnerships. Unfortunately too often museums, entertainment industries and research hubs do not effectively communicate with each other.
This workshop will promote a network in the field of digital entertainment for museums by bringing together experts from the museum field, prominent researchers from computer science and design, as well as professionals of the entertainment industry.
