Smartphones bring the dead to life in cemeteries

Six innovative ideas for future heritage ideas in the south west have been given financial backing after grant funding was released to academics, technologists and cultural economy professionals.

This will facilitate increased collaboration on new ways to enhance local heritage experiences, the centrepiece of which will be a public showcase in Bristol this September.

Funded by REACT, a division of the Arts and Research Humanities Council, the scheme will marry technology with research to produce a range of projects; including an interactive smartphone app for cemeteries and augmented reality mirrors and surround sound to allow SS Great Britain visitors to gatecrash a party.

REACT Executive Producer Clare Reddington said, “REACT is about supporting unusual partnerships and brilliant ideas. The six Heritage Sandbox projects are great examples of the new ways of thinking that can be achieved by bringing together arts and humanities research with creative companies. We are very excited about working with these collaborations over the next three months and bringing their projects to life.”
