2nd June 19:00: DHBenelux2022 Conference dinner at Dimmisi, Belval campus

2nd June before, instead of, and/or after the conference dinner: Exhibition + drinks at Colônia Luxemburguesa (self-paid)

A Colônia Luxemburguesa is a transmedia project that tells the histories of the steel-framed migration history between Luxembourg and Brazil from different angles and across different platforms. A Colônia Luxemburguesa combines on the one hand the project website www.colonia.lu with an interactive documentary and an online crowdsourcing platform, on the other hand, the two physical and fully participatory platforms called [L]AÇO kiosks, located in Luxembourg and in Brazil. [L]AÇO is a word play (laço=tie ; aço=steel) and literally means ties of steel. These interconnected [L]AÇO kiosks invite local communities of the two mining areas to collectively unravel a century of shared heritage. Public participation thus occurs through multiple platforms, blending in collaborative crowdsourcing activities with digital and analogue community interactions, public events and multimedia exhibitions.
