Wednesday 27th November, 2013
4:00pm to 4:25pm
The newly redeveloped Toitu Otago Settlers Museum opened in December 2012 after a long period of closure. Very different to what had been offered before, the new Museum presents Dunedin’s history in a very modern style.
As part of a $37m redevelopment, every aspect of interpretation within the Museum galleries was considered, with a heavy reliance on new touch screen technology. Layers of text and information have been developed and visitors can use free wifi and QR codes for further layers of interpretation. This presentation will also touch on the ‘Our Voices’ project – a community collaboration that allows visitors to access filmed stories about different people and communities through ‘People Posts’.
This presentation will talk about the processes which were used to arrive at the final interpretation presentations, and how this is working in reality on the ground.
Jennifer Evans is Visitor Experience Manager at Toitu Otago Settlers Museum, looking after exhibitions, LEOTC, public programmes and events.
