Emotive is an EU-funded heritage project that aims to use emotional storytelling to dramatically change how we experience heritage sites. From 2016-2019, the Emotive consortium will research, design, develop and evaluate methods and tools that can support the cultural and creative industries in creating narratives which draw on this power of ’emotive storytelling’.
I coordinate communication and dissemination of the Emotive project on behalf of NOHO Dublin.
Connecting Early Medieval European Collections (CEMEC) is an EU-funded cooperation project that aims to create a collaborative network, and a cost-effective business model, between eight European museum collections and six technical partners.
Drawing on objects from participating museum collections, the project will produce ‘CROSSROADS’, a travelling exhibition focusing on connectivity and cultural exchange during the Early Middle Ages (300 -1000) in Europe.
I’m involved in CEMEC on behalf of NOHO Dublin, who is the project’s technical partner. I look after the metadata input and partner coordination in relation to the Cross Culture Timeline application.
The Letters of 1916 project is the first public humanities project in Ireland and it was launched in September 2013. It is creating a crowd-sourced digital collection of letters written around the time of the Easter Rising (1 November 1915 – 31 October 1916).
I was involved in the Letters of 1916 project from the beginning. Among others, I was responsible for the letters digitisation and workflow, project coordination, graphic design, visual identity, web content management, communication and social media.
As a part of the Science Foundation of Ireland: Science Week 2015, I co-organised the Digital Treasure Hunt 2015 at An Foras Feasa, Maynooth University for secondary school students. The event engaged students in activities using digital technologies in order to discover more about life in Ireland 2000 years. It consisted of various interactive group activities that introduced students to a wide range of technologies used in cultural heritage research and practice, including digital photography, hyper-spectral imaging, virtual and augmented reality, photogrammetry, etc.
Dublin Museum Hunt 2014 aimed to explore museums in Dublin through enjoyable engagement with the artefacts through mobile photography in aid for charity.
I co-ordinated the event and was responsible for the programme, logistics and social media engagement. I created and managed the website for the event, including graphic design (e.g. website, logo, posters).
Dublin Manhole Covers started with a picture or two taken across Dublin, inspired by a trip to Berlin, but it has turned into a small independent ‘project’ since. Walking around Georgian and Victorian Dublin made me more curious about this overlooked industrial and domestic heritage of our City. My collection consists of over 300 examples / photographs and is still growing. I’m developing some ideas around it, so watch this space.
