Citizen Scholarship in Nottingham: understanding the value of engaging users with heritage and culture.


Cultural and heritage organisations from across the region have taken part in the first ‘Citizen Scholarship’ workshop run by the University of Nottingham, which aims to provide them with the digital tools they need to improve engagement with their audiences.

This new initiative, funded by the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council, is led by Dr Jo Robinson in theSchool of English, working with Dr Alan Chamberlain of the Mixed Reality Lab, in the School of Computer Science. Supported by Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature, it aims to give cultural and heritage organisations in Nottingham and beyond a structured series of practical workshops to explore and trial the use of free and easily accessible digital tools to enhance engagement with heritage and history.
