As a result of the CRCDM research-creation exhibition and participation at the Digital Heritage Congress 2018 in San Francisco last October, we caught the interest of the GOOGLE Arts and Culture Institute. Our exhibit was right beside theirs. In follow-up CRCDM further shared some of the digital heritage content we have created over the past four years, which lead to the signing of the agreement. With this in place CRCDM will have a presence on the Arts and Culture platform and to access to GOOGLE technology for creating and showcasing Malaysian heritage content, with worldwide recognition. We are currently designing our first exhibition. More news to follow.
