In this study day you will co-create your own new kinds of future museum experience. The workshop will let you learn through hands-on experience about next generation museum experiences, emerging technologies, co-design practise and ways to build audience centred innovation into your work.
Discover how the technologies maturing in the next ten years will reshape what it means to be a museum more than any others in the last 250 years. As the internet merges with the physical world, 5G telecoms, AI, blockchain, robotics and more offer us the chance to rethink the relationship between people, institutions and objects.
