VRtefacts, Virtual Reality storytelling for museums
What it is
VRtefacts is a museum-focused virtual reality (VR) experience designed to heighten a visitor’s sense of connection and engagement with items from the collection, ending with visitors donating a personal story around that object.
VRtefacts was developed within the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 727040, GIFT: Meaningful Personalization of Hybrid Virtual Museum Experiences Through Gifting and Appropriation.
See the project’s homepage for more information about the other work we’ve been doing.
VRtefacts is a flexible concept. The project can be reworked in any number of ways to suit different needs. Contact jocelyn.spence [at] nottingham.ac.uk if you have any questions – we are always happy to explore new ways to develop it!
