Crossover Archive Lab @ The Wellcome Trust

Event Details

Event Description

How can the stories and histories, the hidden gems and treasures contained within archives, museum, library and gallery collections inspire innovative uses of digital media? Do you have the skill and imagination to devise crossplatform or transmedia projects which can engage new audiences, and make archives and collections accessible using IPTV, the web, mobile or other platforms?

The Wellcome Trust and Crossover Labs are delighted to invite curators, archivists, archive rights holders and producers with experience in film or television, social media, web design, games, mobile and location based services to participate in an intensive 5 day ‘creative lab’with a specific focus on developing innovative digital projects inspired by archives or museum and gallery collections.

The Crossover Archive Lab, which is supported and hosted by the Wellcome Trust,
will bring curators and archivists together with creative professionals from diverse disciplines – including film and TV production, animation, games, theatre, web design and new media – to share understanding of a rapidly changing mediascape, to form new interdisciplinary collaborations and generate ideas for projects.

The Lab will provide a space for exploration and development, a unique opportunity to forge meaningful partnerships capable of creating new kinds of access to archive material. As well as producers with a background in film and television, we are particularly interested in attracting applications from writers with experience in fiction and drama, as well as games developers.

The Crossover Archive Lab will be held at the Wellcome Collection between January 16th and 22nd, 2011.

Applications should be made online at: http://www.crossoverlabs.org/events/42
