(Gallery 10, Level 1)
10am - 12:30pm: Implementation of digital projects in temporary exhibitions and permanent collections at the Paris Musées by Philippe Riviere (Paris Musées)

Since its creation 5 years ago, Paris Musées has deeply transformed its way of implementing digital technology in its exhibitions. From simple displays in 2013 to innovative tools in most of its exhibitions in 2017, digital has become an important part of Paris Musées' process of building exhibitions and new museography.

But how has digital technology been implemented in the process? And for which visitors' needs? This participative workshop will feature real case studies based on past exhibitions and new itineraries within the museums.

12:30pm - 1pm: Sharing Session

1pm - 2pm: Lunch (included)

(Seminar Room, Level 2)
2pm - 4:30pm: Let's Tell a Story in Merged Reality Space by Chris Walker (Bright White Ltd, UK)

In this workshop, Chris will introduce practitioners to the world of storytelling in merged reality space. Using real objects from the National Museum of Singapore, participants will learn how to develop content that maximises the possibilities of these technologies. The end result will be short presentations representing each group’s response to the museum objects. The workshop is suitable for anyone from business development officers to curators, conservators, content developers, scriptwriters, learning and education teams, digital developers and art workers.

4:30pm - 5pm: Sharing Session

5pm - 6pm: Closing
