Digital storytelling in the museum - Projection Takeover Day, Birmingham Museums Trust


As part of the BBC Academy's Digital Cities week in Birmingham, we are running an event that will give you a chance to create visual interactive art work, and take over Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery!

Wed, 25 September 2019, 10:00 – 16:00.

Last year, Birmingham Museums took the decision to make images from its out-of-copyright collections freely available under a Creative Commons CC0 licence.

At this event, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery want you to use these images to create projection-based interactive artworks that will be displayed all over the gallery, “taking over” the space in a playfully subversive act. These might be interactive slideshows, poetry, stories or even games.

You will work in small groups to use free software to manipulate the images and produce your interactive artwork.

No previous technical experience is needed, just the willingness to learn a variety of simple tools and collaboratively produce a creative output or artwork.

There will also be an opportunity to showcase projections at a Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery Late event later in the year.

This free event is led by John Sear, game designer and software developer, and Linda Spurdle, Digital Development Manager, Birmingham Museums Trust.
