Event description

Description

The aim of this workshop is to explore how experiences emerge from the intersection of content, narratives, places and audiences. We are keen to understand how these elements can be combined to create participatory immersive experiences for public spaces that allow heritages to be experienced using immersive technologies. In so doing we are exploring how to enhance and invigorate these spaces. We want to understand what does, and what doesn’t work for certain kinds of heritage, narratives, places and audiences.


To do this we have designed an ‘ideation game’ for groups based around different forms of heritages, places on and around Northumberland St, features of the built environment (e.g. lampposts, phone boxes, street corners) and different types of audiences exemplified through personas. Participants will be presented with a range of heritage items to stimulate their creativity and generate ideas. Participants from any background are welcome and we encourage people to think big.

- James Charlton, Lecturer in Architecture

- Kay Rogage, Vice-Chancellor’s Research Fellow in Digital Living

- Richard Watson, Senior Research Fellow
