Museum Ideas Study Day: Creating Visionary Exhibitions and Galleries
This exclusive and intensive study day took place on Thursday 20th March 2014 in London. A small group of museum, gallery and heritage professionals had the opportunity to question leading professionals and gain first-hand experience on how to develop and deliver transformative exhibitions and galleries. Delegates explored how to use objects and narrative to create memorable and moving experiences which stimulate curiosity, encourage reflection and cultivate existing knowledge and experience. The event study day also examined the use of multimedia, film and digital interpretation.
