The Collection Museum secures arts funding to help digital learning

The Collection Museum has secured £35,000 from the Respond and Reimagine Art Fund grant to help develop more online learning resources.

The funding from Art Fund is in place to help museums, galleries, and cultural organisations respond to immediate challenges connected to the Covid-19 crisis, and offers support to adapt and reimagine ways of working for the future.

Anita Fox, learning manager at Lincolnshire County Council, says: “This is brilliant news. We have so many plans for the future.

“It will allow us to design new and innovative digital assets, which we know will showcase our collections and exhibitions from heritage sites including the Collection, Lincoln Castle and the Museum of Lincolnshire Life, in a way our audiences will really love.

“We will be able to create an interactive Virtual Reality world where we can really bring to life our gallery  and create 3d scans of Roman and Viking artefacts, making it even more exciting and interesting.

“It will include hidden stories, unusual finds and glimpses behind the scenes into those hard to reach areas!

“We are also planning digital learning toolkits which will explore the art and history of our sites – from prehistory to the twentieth century with films, podcasts, image galleries and live streamed sessions.

“These have been really popular during lockdown so far, so it is brilliant to know we now can create more for the future.”
