Event description

Description


This day-long event will bring regional curators, academics, creatives and technologists together to develop innovative, financially sustainable solutions to real-world museum challenges.

Six teams will develop technical and creative ideas and compete for £2,000 in seed funding plus business planning support from Southampton Solent University. The winning idea will be selected by an expert panel.

The six museums looking forward to working with you to solve their intriguing challenges are:

  • Mary Rose Museum: how to create virtual access to collections hidden in reserve stores.
  • Lightbox Museum and Gallery: how to reach younger audiences.
  • Pendon Museum: how to make better use of the existing website to develop and monetise relationships with 'virtual' visitors.
  • Maidenhead Heritage Centre: how to tell dynamic transport stories without the use of moving objects.
  • King John's House Museum and Heritage Centre: how to visualise the way this historic building would have looked in the past.
  • Southampton Arts and Heritage: how to ensure that resource intensive temporary exhibitions have a continued legacy.

Our expert panel is:

  • Stephen Brown, Senior Lecturer in Entrepreneurship & Strategy at Southampton Solent University
  • Anra Kennedy, Content and Partnerships Director at Culture24
  • Technology entrepreneur Nikolaos Maniatis, founder of Museotechniki

And there'll be an energising insight into innovation and creativity from Ed Gould of award-winning creative agency Carswell Gould.
