Talk on the potential of encouraging Visitor Engagement through locative media

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


An Knowledge Exchange event was organised by Lancaster's Digital Humanities group on developing impact with digital resources. The event was attended by a number of cultural heritage organisations based in the north west including National Trust, Wordsworth trust, etc. I presented a talk entitled: "Encouraging Visitor Engagement and Reflection with the Landscape of the English Lake District: Exploring the potential of Locative Media". A number of the curators present commented that they were not aware of the potential of Locative Media in supporting visitor engagement and following on from this event a number of further collaborations have arisen with Wordsworth Trust and National Trust. Furthermore, we have received letters of support for EPSRC research funding from the aforementioned as well as Oldham Council – Arts and Heritage.
