Objectively Speaking Conference at the British Museum

The presentation, called Evoking Sherlock, discussed the Collection's need for more accessibility for members of the public who are blind or have low vision. The collaboration with the University of Portsmouth's Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries was discussed and examples of the multi-sensory work currently being explored were given.  Evoking Sherlock was also part of a panel which discussed current technology and how recent advances have led to more options for museums to translate their collections.  Other panel members included Paul Clifford who spoke about "maker" culture and its use in education and Sam Sportun and Christopher Dean who presented a museum exploration device which utilises haptic technology.
