We are at the very early planning phase for running a ‘geo and cultural sector’ bash and would appreciate hearing from anyone potentially interested in participating/speaking/assisting with such an event.
What sort of things did we have in mind? Well, this type of application of location information to the cultural heritage sector looks to be potentially very exciting and engaging. Not only does it bring our cultural history to life but it provides a more interactive, engaging and ultimately educational approach over the traditional diorama-cum-static display case mentality. Surely culture is about enriching our lives and is a distinctly human trait, as human as an innate binding to place – as Lord Raglan once noted:
“Culture is roughly anything we do and the monkeys don't.”
