Journey to the Beginnings is a collaborative project involving prehistoric cultural heritage sites and museums, contemporary arts and new technologies. It aims to rediscover and promote the prehistoric cultural heritage of the ancient civilisations that lived along the river Danube.

The main goal of the project is to develop a new interpretive infrastructure for the prehistoric sites involved, as well as their museums and archaeological parks, by using cultural heritage as a source of inspiration for contemporary arts and new technologies. The project will help enhance public appreciation of prehistoric cultures in all their forms and diversity. Cross-sectoral collaboration will be fostered between archaeologists, museum professionals, contemporary artists and IT experts, which will result in live performances and an Augmented and Virtual Reality-based application. The live performances will be celebrations of prehistoric cultural heritage taking the form of festivals at each site, and the application will offer a sustainable interpretive infrastructure that will develop the visitor experience.  

Journey to the Beginnings tears down the walls between modern and ancient civilizations and connects them with the help of art and science, bringing the audience closer both to archaeology, contemporary art and modern technology.
