DARIAH Innovation Forum

Arts and Humanities have traditionally contributed on a large scale to societal change and public innovation. Today, furthered by the digital transformation, Arts and Humanities have unprecedented opportunities for impacting societal change and the capacity for creative talent.

Arts and Humanities’ innovation potentials are closely related to the new roles of GLAM institutions, to digitally enhanced education and training, as well as to spearheading Cultural (Big) Data and the Internet of (Cultural) Things.

Digital Arts and Humanities will prove seminal to cultural creative value chains for more than economic measures, and may form a basis for policy making on a European level, where the cultural creative sector is in focus.

The DARIAH Innovation Forum #1 brings together researchers, public innovation and the creative industries.


Aarhus is European Capital of Culture 2017, and will offer a vibrant environment of cultural events, artistic interventions and performance productions, creative neighborhoods and culinary venues for the DARIAH Innovation Forum.

DARIAH Innovation Forum opens in the evening of Nov 2 with a keynote by Prof. Andrew Perkis on Arts and Technology and a presentation of the new DARIAH Innovation Board. The opening venue is AROS (Aarhus Art Museum).
