Hamburg - London: Senior Executive eCulture Summer School, July, 2014

A collaborative Summer School for senior executives from the City of Hamburg, museums, galleries, and other cultural and entertainment sectors on how to take advantage of digital technologies and practices. The Summer School was organised in collaboration with The Vasari Centre at Birkbeck, University of London. Senior academics and industry figures came together to review and discuss case studies and overall trends. The overall aim was to encourage ongoing collaboration between the cities of London and Hamburg. 45 participants attended over the four days at Ravensbourne on the Greenwich Peninsula and at the University of London. The seminar also included visits to museums and galleries across London, and a programme of evening cultural events. The eCulture Summer School – it is hoped – will become an annual event and extend outwards to include the city of Florence in July 2015.
