This work, undertaken by the Centre for Architecture, Urbanism and Global Heritage, in collaboration with Nottingham Castle Trust, Nottingham City Council and the British Geological Survey, investigates the history of the site and its socio-cultural narratives.
The workshop is organised around one day of activities. The morning will focus on seminar talks by the researchers, scholars and experts in public engagement with museum’s collections, galleries and virtual reality for heritage. The afternoon is planned for talks by stakeholders, user groups’ representatives, sharing their reflection on current and previous displays. User groups, their representatives and public audience will have the chance to have a taster session with the current developed experience, advise on its development and contribute to its future design.
