New voices, New Stories
Thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund Brighton & Hove Museums have taken the opportunity to shake up our formula with Telling Tales, Talking Trails. In collaboration with volunteers, we developed a set of digital experiments aimed at introducing new ways of storytelling.
A Preston Manor audio guide was introduced in 2022. This is a spoken WebApp tour with transcribed text and images created by volunteers, this is accessed through a browser on your mobile device as you walk around the building or can be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home.
This was followed by One Minute Wonders in 2023. This combined the power of digital storytelling with an exhibition of animal and plant-related prints and drawings from our collection.
The third and final phase of our project, Telling Tales, Talking Trails is now underway. It will once again include the contribution of volunteers to create new digital stories for Brighton Museum & Art Gallery and develop more inclusive ways of storytelling.
We would like to share with you our methods and findings on Thursday 19 October at Preston Manor at our museum digital storytelling seminar. Doors will open at 10am and the day will be broken into two sessions with guest speakers in the morning, followed by lunch, and then in the afternoon, an opportunity to explore Preston Manor and experience our WebApp tour for yourself.
This is a free ticketed event with a limited number of places available. You can book your place on the Telling Tales, Talking Trails: Digital Storytelling seminar via the booking link here
