arately. As the AmI@Life tables for the two domains
as well as their functions show considerable over-
laps in technologies, we combined them to avoid too
much duplication.
The reasons for including the domain `cultural par-
ticipation' are, first, that related activities would cer-
tainly also involve cultural heritage spaces and services
and, secondly, that what are described as ICT applica-
tions for the two key functions of cultural participa-
tion may well form part of the digital heritage space.
For the key function `out-of-house cultural partici-
pation and recreation', this includes enhancement and
personalisation of the experience of `out-of-house'
cultural activities (related to cinema, theatre, amuse-
ment parks, etc.). These may be achieved through,
for example, pre-/virtual/multi-modal/augmented
real life & post-visits including context-aware loca-
tion-based services, peer-to-peer and social network
applications. For the key function `creation & art' are
mentioned new ways of sharing experience and sen-
sations, of co-production and co-creation between
artists, and new forms of art as a result of human-
machine and machine-machine interactions.
