The Amelia Scott, Tunbridge Wells invites you to join a symposium exploring the role digital will play in the future of Museums, Art Galleries and Heritage sites.
The symposium, based on our new temporary exhibition Collection Tomorrow, will bring together speakers from the V&A, Horniman Museum, Group for Education in Museums (GEM), and more, to explore how museums are adapting to the digital age and harnessing technology to uncover untold stories, preserve our cultural heritage and engage with audiences in innovative ways. Learn how a collaboration with Great Ormond Street and the V&A has created new opportunities for artists, educators and audiences to share. You'll also have the chance to participate in a hands-on workshop, where you can gain insights into the process of 3D scanning an object, and how this technology is harnessed for research or 3D printing to enhance learning experiences.
The conference will give you the opportunity to engage with your local museums and hear a showcase of examples of how a Collection cannot only connect with new audiences digitally but can be used to reach and inspire new audiences. The day will offer a mixture of talks from leading professionals in the sector and practical workshops showcasing digital tools that can be used on a budget (and in some cases for free!). There will also be the opportunity to explore the new exhibition, and network through facilitated discussions.
Hosted at The Amelia Scott, a ground-breaking new cultural and community space opened 28th April 2022. It combines a range of culture venues – a Museum, art gallery, and library – with Tourist Information Centre, Adult Education and frontline Council Services all in one brand new building.
This Symposium is suitable for museum, heritage and arts professionals, people working in equality & diversity practice in the cultural sector, volunteers, trustees, students, artists, freelancers and educators.
