The Working Group 2.3 Future in Mind of the VIMM Thematic Area 2-Directions has provided the outcome of work: a vast list of 41 best practices and state of the art examples of platform, collaborative projects and business models in order to gain sustainability used in cultural heritage VR/AR. It included an analysis of some bad practices and examples too. Even though far fewer posts were written about the future, we do feel this subject is of paramount importance if we want to work on future-proof solutions and advice for legislation that can be applied for longer than a few years.

The Working Group 2.2 Technologies and Tools of the VIMM Thematic Area 2-Directions has provided the outcome of work: a vast list of 89 best practices and state of the art examples of virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality used in cultural heritage, in order to find out what the characteristics of VR as a medium are, to discover what stories can be told using AR/VR/MR and to recognise how these stories remain connected to the real world. The expert group consisting of international experts on the field of new media, storytelling and cultural heritage created and assessed a list concerning five topics: 21 cases of media – what kinds of media support the AR/VR/MR experience, 18 cases of interactivity – how can content connect to the user, 31 cases of storytelling – how do we connect content pieces between them and to the general message, 12 cases of meaningful content vs. the real world – how does content connect to the real world and 7 cases of media characteristics – how can we define VR as a medium.Read More
