Museum of Lincolnshire Life calls for young volunteers to help create interactive touchscreen tour guides
Sep 11, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
Thanks to funding from Arts Council England's Renaissance Programme, the Lincoln museum is currently creating new touchscreen tour guides to help people get more out of their visit.
iGuides: Interactive tour guides are already available at The Collection and Usher Gallery museums. They're now on their way to the Museum of Lincolnshire Life.
Now, it is holding two workshops for people aged between 16-25 years old so they can offer their suggestions on how best to bring Lincolnshire history to life.
Sara Basquill, Collections Access Officer, said:
"The guides will be packed with video and audio clips, images and games to offer a fresh and fun way to explore exhibits, and give visitors a better understanding of local history.
"While we want them to appeal to all age groups, we know younger visitors will be particularly attracted to them.
"So we're holding these two workshops so they can share their ideas, suggestions and comments on what we should include."
The workshops will be held on 17 and 24 September, starting at 1.30pm. Volunteers will only need to attend one session, and refreshments will be provided. Those interested should contact Sara Basquill at email@example.com or on 01522 525191.
