Pioneers from diverse countries and cross-disciplinary fields focused on a range of issues covering new forms of heritage interpretation and the future of new media at the forefront of museum design. Emphasis was placed cutting edge research and practice from around the world, with a focus on tangible and intangible heritage in Asian contexts. The symposium was intended for museums practitioners throughout Hong Kong, China and Taiwan, for researchers interested in forms of cultural mediation, students of cultural heritage and designers of new media.
The three-day programme was accompanied by day-long strategic workshops including Digital Intangible Heritage of Asia and the inaugural Museums and the Web Asia.
