Hybrid Exhibitions: Techniques for Digitally Restaging Exhibitions using AR, VR & 360 Photo Tours

1:30 pm - 5:00 pm
22 Sep 2021.

Presented by M&G NSW as part of  Let’s Get Digital, this workshop will introduce you to a variety of cheap or free tools that you can use to bring augmented reality elements into exhibitions or restage exhibitions in virtual spaces. We will focus on Artivive, Mozilla Hubs and Matterport providing you with guided, practical exercises and hands-on experiences using these platforms.

The workshop will consist of a 40mins presentation followed by 15 minutes for questions. This will be followed by a two-hour practical session to work through an exercise, supported by the presenter if required. The session will conclude with 60 minutes group Q & A session to reflect on how best to use these tools.

This workshop will be recorded and made available as a resource.
