Heritage Pathway Workshop - 3D Heritage: Digital Tools for Object Engagement

This session will introduce participants to the concept and utility of 3D digital tools in cultural heritage documentation, presentation and interpretation. We will explore cases and experiences from Tom Flynn, a leading digital heritage practitioner working with 3D, AR, and VR cultural content, and colleagues from the Hampshire Cultural Trust, who have worked with leading experts in the gaming and technology industries to develop 878 AD, an immersive shopping centre Heritage experience in the city of Winchester.  


Tom Flynn spent many years as Sketchfab’s advocate for heritage focussed digital objects and projects and has advised a wide range of partner organisations including UNESCO, the European Commission, Creative Commons, and many universities and cultural institutions. Check out one of his blogs to get a taste of his expertise: https://sketchfab.com/blogs/community/how-to-make-your-scans-look-great-on-sketchfab .
