Horizon will be working with The Imperial War Museum (IWM), UCLDH (Centre for Digital Humanities),
Knowledge Integration and UCL CASA (Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis) on a
Research & Development project to explore digital innovation in the
cultural sector. Funded by the Digital Research and Development Fund for Arts
and Culture, run by NESTA, Arts Council England and
the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), the R&D fund aims to support
cultural organisations to work with digital experts to understand the potential
offered by new technologies.
The project explores how social media models can be applied to museum
collections, offering new frameworks for engagement and social interpretation,
and hoping to create a system which encourages people to respond to the themes
and collections in IWM’s exhibition spaces through several forms of digital
interaction and participation both in the gallery and online.
