What our workshop participants say

Good mix of theory and practical application.


Lots of ideas to take back to my venue and incorporate.


Each workshop counts as 6 hours of support.

Discover: Engaging Audiences through Communication

We provide you with the strategic tools for identifying the key assets of your collection or leisure offer and for choosing the best channels – digital or otherwise - to deliver these to your target audiences.

This workshop will introduce further technologies, including 3D capture (photogrammetry and scanning), 3D visualisation (augmented reality and virtual reality), and 3D printing.
