The Lahore Biennale Foundation is partnering with the British Council to develop a Virtual Museum as a perfect confluence of history, heritage and technology, which will aim to provide individuals with a virtual space to reconnect with their cultural heritage, whilst allowing them to collaboratively create a new understanding of their cultural context.
The Virtual Museum is intended be a platform for artists, creative practitioners, and visitors to create projects that investigate their shared cultural heritage and the legacies of creative practice that have emerged from it, with ‘place’ being a significant contextual frame. As part of the overarching project, the virtual museum will collaborate with and also curate and host a series of talks, panel discussions, workshops, research (grants) and heritage framing activities, etc. in its digital space. The museum will produce knowledge that will be rooted in the local domain and function as an online repository of data and research generated by itself and the project at large.
