Storifying an Augmented Future for Museums (MuseumAR) is an Erasmus+ project funded by the European Commission for the years 2021-2023. MusuemAR aims to bridge the knowledge gap in relation to augmented reality among museum professionals, on how to utilise and integrate these technologies into their processes and to bridge the gap between the world of museums and the world of education.
The project’s consortium is composed by six partners from five European countries, consisting of experts in the area of Museum and cultural education, experts in the research and development sector, as well as experts in adult and youth education.
The objectives of the project are:
- To introduce adult educators and museum professionals to the potential of AR as a storytelling tool and help them develop the capacity to train professionals and young graduates in utilizing it
- To build synergies between education and culture facilitated by new technologies
- To build capacity in museum employees and young graduates to collaborate with technology experts in a manner that will revamp the way these institutions operate and engage their visitors
- To empower museums and cultural institutions to adopt innovative technological tools to engage their audience and present their collection
