Last Thursday we were given an exciting tour of the Heritage and Cultural Learning Hub at the University of Birmingham, where we given updates on the development of ‘The Hub’ and its potential to advance our project. Technologies will enable data tracking of audiences accessing high quality content on multi-touch, multi-user tables and walls, on mobile devices or via the Internet. Moreover in The Hub sensory tracking and video will be used to record audience behaviours as they orientate and interact within the space. Particularly innovative is the ability to trace and analyse audiences at an individual and communal level. The Hub will be launching this autumn…

Other interesting activities over the past week include a drop-in session at Warwick Bar, Digbeth, on the creative future of the Banana Warehouse. On behalf of ISIS Waterside Regeneration Cultural Programmer, Sue Ball, is leading discussions on ideas for the use of the site from the end of 2013 onwards. Meanwhile over at the Custard Factory, the excellent ‘Arts all over the place’ is taking place in Lakeside Gallery as part of the Festival of Arts in Mental Health with a program of events till Saturday 13th October. Definitely worth visiting and to show support for an important cultural intermediary who have organised this year’s festival while dealing with large funding cuts.
