cattura 1

In conjunction with the international Engineering & Product Design Education Conference, and the EU PLUGGY project, Imperial College and Royal College of Art are hosting a free co-design workshop for participants to co-create cultural experiences based on the rich design and innovation history of Albertopolis using the tools for augmentation created by PLUGGY, REACH linked project.
PLUGGY (the Pluggable Social Platform for Heritage Awareness and Participation), is a 3-years Horizon 2020 EC funded project, which provides a social platform and a series of pluggable applications that aim at facilitating a continuing process of creating, modifying and safeguarding heritage where European citizens will be consumers, creators and maintainers of cultural activities.
You are warmly invited to join us for a late afternoon and evening of refreshments, problem solving, and hacking for culture!
