Last Chance To Book For BBC Civilisations Workshops In England

The BBC are running a series of Civilisations Festival Digital workshops for organisations across the UK who are considering taking part in the BBC Civilisations Festival next year.

The workshops are a unique opportunity for you to see digital tools in action and to explore ideas about how they could be used to create digital experiences (including showcasing items from your collections) to accompany Civilisations Festival activity.

You’ll be able to see examples of the tools, hands on demonstrations and practical advice on how they could be used by your organisation.

The workshop dates in England:

  • Wednesday 11th October – York
  • Thursday 12th October – Manchester
  • Tuesday 17th October – Bristol (BBC Bristol)

They will run from 2 – 4pm. There will be workshops taking place in Northern Ireland, Scotland & Wales soon and we will post those here on the AIM website when announced.

You are encouraged to bring a range of colleagues with a range of expertise to along.  These include colleagues who have practical experience of curation, those involved in digital programme activities and digital experts who will be using the tools to attend.

These are free workshops run by the expert staff from the BBC’s digital Research and Development teams. They’ll be there to guide you through this exciting new project and the opportunities it offers your organisation to interact with audiences in a digital space. People with all levels of expertise are welcome and the BBC may be able to offer further support to your organisation as the project develops.

If you or your colleagues would like to attend any of the workshops across the UK, please email the BBC using the address below with ‘workshop’ in the Subject field and where you’d like to attend as soon as possible.

After the workshops, your organisation will need to confirm it wants to be part of some of the digital projects by the end of October 2017. This includes the Augmented Reality App, where museums and the BBC will work together sharing the expertise of our digital engineers. The BBC may only be able to offer only a small number of organisations to join the App project after that.  For other digital tools, the deadlines will vary from late autumn into early 2018.
