CreaThrive-EU: Euroclusters for Thriving Creative and Cultural Industries

Travel Grant | Art Tech Business Partnership Japan and S. Korea

Travel grant for Art Tech Business Partnership, a cross-cultural initiative that aimed to foster collaboration and innovation in the Art Tech sector among Lithuania, Japan, and South Korea. The project was implemented with collaboration by the Lithuanian Ministry of Culture and the Baltic Film and Creative Tech Cluster. The main activity of the project was a 2-week business trip to South Korea and Japan, where we met with potential partners, customers, and stakeholders in the Art Tech industry, and participated in various events, workshops, and networking sessions. The project resulted in the establishment of partnership agreement/ memorandum and further leads for future cooperation, as well as the exchange of best practices, technologies, and insights. The project also contributed to the promotion of the Art Tech sector in each country, and the enhancement of the cultural and economic ties among them. The project is expected to have a positive and lasting impact on the innovation and growth of the Art Tech sector in Lithuania, as well as the socio-economic development and well-being of the people involved. 

The business mission was a valuable and meaningful initiative that demonstrated the potential and benefits of cross-cultural collaboration and innovation in the Art Tech sector among Lithuania, Japan, and South Korea. The project achieved its objectives and delivered significant results and impacts for the participants, the partners, the sponsors, and the Art Tech sector in each country. The project also created a solid foundation and a positive momentum for the continuation and expansion of the cooperation and exchange in the Art Tech sector among the three countries. 


Collaboration pilot | KOSMOS APP V2

The main goal of KOSMOS APP V2 was to develop a platform that allows artists, musicians, and cultural heritage organizations to create immersive and interactive AR experiences that enhance the visitors’ engagement and appreciation of the historical and artistic value of the sites. The platform consists of two components: an admin platform for the creators to design and upload their content, and a mobile app for the users to access and enjoy the content through their smartphones. The platform uses various sensors, such as gyroscope, GPS, to link the content with the physical environment and create a seamless and personalized experience.

By upgrading the APP we introduce a new means of partnership between cultural heritage organizations, performing arts scenery and users to explore historical and cultural landmarks thus adding new layer of experiencing our history and culture. Moreover, the project’s use of collaborative partnerships with artists, scientists, and researchers as well as project partners- developers MB “Structurum” will promote cross-disciplinary knowledge sharing, contributing to a more vibrant and dynamic CCIs ecosystem.

In terms of sustainability, the project focused on promoting digitalization, reducing physical production, and reducing carbon emissions thus contributing to a more environmentally conscious and sustainable CCIs ecosystem. The project’s usage of gamification features encourages sustainable behaviors among users, leading to a more sustainable culture and lifestyle.

Overall, the KOSMOS APP project offers a unique and innovative approach to engaging with culture and history through digital technology and performing arts. The project’s inclusivity, collaborative partnerships, and focus on sustainability can contribute to a more vibrant, diverse, and sustainable CCIs ecosystem.

“The Art Tech Business Partnership and KOSMOS APP development was co-funded by the European Union’s Single Market Programme.”
