Creating a new sense of place

Dissemination of, and public engagement with, the outcomes of historical research can benefit from tourism management and the intervention of cultural institutions in utilising new digital technologies that promote engaging ways of enhancing the visitor experience. These resources may be online or on site, but equally provide a new critical currency in the global digital economy. 

Professor Ray Howells of the South Wales Centre for Historical and Interdisciplinary Research and Matt Chilcott, development director for digital tourism, interpretation and inclusion at CMC2 Community Interest Group and PhD scholar at the George Ewart Evans Centre for Storytelling will be discussing their experiences of work carried out by SWICHR in the creation of immersive digital environments and other projects.
