On Wednesday 27th April 2016 we will be running a workshop on user-generated locative media experiences on campus at the University of Nottingham. We would like to invite participants who have a special interest in the Highfields Park and Lakeside areas of the University of Nottingham, for example local history groups, employees of the University or City Council who have responsibility or interest in the areas. The workshop will introduce participants to 3 pieces of software:
- PARM – http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/~lgzwww/contacts/staffPages/gary/research/parm_epsrc.html
- ArtMaps – http://artmaps.tate.org.uk/artmaps/tate
- Wander/Anywhere – http://wanderanywhere.com/
as well as the University of Nottingham Manuscripts and Special Collections. Participants will then be asked to use the software tools provided to create their own locative media experiences (either in groups or on their own) which they will then be able to share with other participants. Wandering Highfields Park will be encouraged and some digital recording equipment (cameras, camcorders) will be available to use on the day.
Lunch will be provided and reasonable travel expenses can be reimbursed.
For all enquiries or if you would like to attend, please email Dominic Price at firstname.lastname@example.org.
