pagode second general assembly

The second general assembly of PAGODE project took place on 22 June 2021 in an online meeting, to review the progress of the project and to plan the project’s activities in the final period: PAGODE is in facts going to end on 30 September 2021.

The uncertainities of the covid -19 evolution forced the project team to review the tasks originally foreseen for the project’s conclusion. Due to safety reasons, physical meetings are in facts not advisable and this caused the need to consider alternative ways of engaging audiences and of transferring knowledge to colleagues and pros.

PAGODE’s end will therefore be celebrated with

  • PAGODE Digital Festival, a series of short online seminars to discover beautiful collections of Chinese heritage, in the period May – September (go to programme)
  • Final Conference, an online event on 23-24 September 2021 (go to programme)
  • PAGODE book, an exclusive and high-profile publication, to tell the stories of the project and to share beautiful images of cultural heritage content

During the General Assembly, more details were unveiled about these initiatives. Additionally the status of all the project’s activities was reviewed, with a particular attention to the development of the upcoming Europeana China virtual exhibition. The meeting was open to partners and associate partners, with a special invitation also forwarded to the HaDEA agency of European Commission. Hosted on Zoom by the University of Ljubljana, 22 June.
