Come along to our free open day to have a look at the new 'RIOT 1831 @ Nottingham Castle' exhibition, which uses the latest Augmented Reality (AR) technology to bring history to life. This open day is specifically for arts, heritage and cultural organisations, technology providers, academics, heritage/arts/technology students and freelancers.
Throughout the day, you will have the opportunity to listen to all three presentations from those involved in delivering this innovative but challenging project. These include staff from Nottingham City Museums and Galleries; academics from the Nottingham Trent University and the University of Nottingham and from the technology providers, Hot Knife Digital Media. They will discuss how the exhibition was created as a partnership and the lessons learned from the experience. Emphasis will be on practical advice that you can use and issues that need to be considered. The funders encouraged risk-taking with its projects and for honest learning to be captured and disseminated.

About the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts
The Digital R&D fund for the Arts is a £7 million fund to support collaboration between organisations with arts projects, technology providers, and researchers. It is a partnership between Arts Council England (www.artscouncil.org.uk), Arts and Humanities Research Council (www.ahrc.ac.uk) and Nesta (www.nesta.org.uk).
We want to see projects that use digital technology to enhance audience reach and/or develop new business models for the arts sector. With a dedicated researcher or research team as part of the three-way collaboration, learning from the project can be captured and disseminated to the wider arts sector.
Every project needs to identify a particular question or problem that can be tested. Importantly this question needs to generate knowledge for other arts organisations that they can apply to their own digital strategies.
DEADLINE TO SIGN UP – 29TH AUGUST 2014
