Digital technologies

Friday, 20 April 2018, 10am – 3.30pm

Lapworth Museum, University of Birmingham

Touchscreen interactives, smartphone apps using location identifiers like iBeacons or NFC chips, and immersive technologies like augmented reality, virtual reality, and voice interactions – digital tools and technologies offer new opportunities for museums to open up access to collections, enhance the visitor experience, and promote the exchange of ideas and knowledge. Yet they also come with a level of scepticism and concerns, especially around money, staff time, and skill gaps.

Our spring event will provide expert insights and practical advice for museum and heritage professionals at all levels who want to build their confidence around digital in a supportive, friendly environment. A full programme will be published soon.

Confirmed speakers include: Anra Kennedy from Culture 24 and Jon Clatworthy from Lapworth Museum.
