This exciting and transformative project extends the principle of widening participation to the digital sphere and will enable the Royal Armouries to engage new audiences at a time when online experiences are ever more critical.
The Royal Armouries digital ambitions are to attract, empower and engage audiences with one of the world’s greatest collections of arms and armour and to create a ‘digital first’ culture throughout the museum. The rollout of the project will:
- transform the museum’s capacity to produce accessible, engaging, and relevant digital content for its growing audiences.
- deliver a seamless online experience, enabling audiences to draw media from across the museum’s digital resource in a user-friendly way.
- create relationships with online visitors based on a more detailed understanding of what they expect and need from their digital museum experience.
- develop and install a new welcome in the form of a digital playground on site at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds.
Our Vision is to ‘transform our approach, digital infrastructure, activity and skills across the organisation, in order to empower new and existing audiences, to engage meaningfully with the compelling narratives of human endeavour and experience relating to Arms and Armour through sharing, collaborating and co-creating’.
