Can museums exhibit the future?
Ask your questions at a livestreamed panel discussion on projects past, present and future. A newly opened Scienceworks exhibition Beyond Perception: Seeing the Unseen is full of immersive experiences, a generative soundscape and animated stories from Victorian scientists and engineers. A project in development will use gamification to explore the Royal Exhibition Building and connect with Melbournes heritage, and Museums Victoria is using interactive technology to encourage discussion about Indigenous knowledge, skills and practices. Find out about these projects and more as Museums Victoria experts explore the ways new technology can connect people and places.
