Upcoming Event: ‘Do not Touch? 3D in Museums’, University of Cambridge

An interesting event held by the University of Cambridge Museums on 3D technology and tactile access to heritage collections is taking place as a one-day conference on 3rd June 2019.

The event aims to bring together a range of professionals within the heritage sector, university researchers and representatives from the creative and digital industries, to explore the use of 3D modelling and printing technology within museums, and how these can be effectively used to make collections accessible for all.

The event hopes to provide and increase interdisciplinary and cross-sector discussions around increasing accessibility to the collections. Speakers for the day range from those working in conservation, education and outreach, research, and 3D technologies. In particular, the organisers are also interested in discussing how interventions could be replicated in other settings and bringing together different voices to establish how this might work.

Tickets for the event are ¬£15 standard registration, but there is also a discounted price for students – for further information and to book a place, visit the University of Cambridge’s website.
