One of the first major research outputs from the University of St Andrews is the creation of a bespoke EU-LAC-MUSEUMS Virtual Museum. In this section, we will highlight the major outputs of the Virtual Museum, and provide the EU-LAC 3D website URL which you can click to enter into our new virtual space! Intergenerational 3D Workshops are being held in 3 European, 3 Latin American and 3 Caribbean countries. The results are being shared here for our regions and for the world to see!
Stepping into a museum and exploring a culture’s stories, traditions and artefacts no longer requires an expensive plane ticket. Through digital technologies, a visitor can explore remote museums, digitally handle objects and learn about a culture’s distinct traditions and stories from the comfort of their home. The Virtual Museum, specifically created for the EU-LAC project, is the media hub for all content produced during 3D workshops. The site will continue hosting materials produced by museums following the instruction of the seminars, and enable contribution from community members. The virtual museum also offer instruction for those eager to learn the techniques used to create the digital media seen on the site.
