As part of our series spotlighting the GIFT project, we take a moment with the Royal Pavilion & Museums in Brighton, UK. They have spent three years working with GIFT project partners Blast Theory, helping to test the GIFT web app in a live museum setting. In this article Digital Manager Kevin Bacon shares his perspective on GIFT and museums of the future.
Following on from last week’s introduction to the GIFT project, Karin Ryding from IT University Copenhagen introduces you to one of its sub-projects: Artcodes, customisable scannable markers that allow you to blend your physical exhibition with digital content. Artcodes were used at the Museum of Yugoslavia to create a poetic and intimate experience addressing memories, conflict and forgiveness.
At Europeana 2019: Connect Communities, you can get hands on with digital culture and explore its impact on our sector, and indeed, our world. Today, we release the first details of sessions at Europeana 2019, and a draft copy of the programme.
At Europeana Foundation we’re really excited to be involved in the GIFT project as part of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. Over the next few weeks we'll be presenting you with some of the exciting developments coming out of the project. We start with an introduction from the Principle Investigator, Anders Sundnes Løvlie.
Over the next few months we’ll be introducing you to the exciting keynote speakers we have lined up to appear at Europeana 2019: Connect Communities. First up is Professor Frédéric Kaplan, digital time traveller extraordinaire.
