Heritage and Digital Hack Days: Interactive Exhibits

Explore exciting new possibilities for interactive exhibits with University of Nottingham experts Ben Bedwell, Gary Priestnall and Sue Cobb who are all currently engaged in active research projects  including PARM – a technique that combines projection with physical models to create dynamic, informative, installations.  In addition to demonstrating key techniques, participants will learn how to build their own interactive exhibitions using low-cost NFC (Near Field Communication) tags and QR codes.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own mobile phone/tablet (and laptop if possible), although additional devices will be provided.

A buffet lunch and refreshments will be provided.  Free parking is available. Please contact Dr. Bedwell in advance of the event to request a parking permit, and to detail any dietary requirements.

Venue: Salon on site at Wollaton Hall

Suitable for: Enthusiasts, practitioners and professionals who engage the public with heritage
