Design a “Museater”
How to build a museater in two days
A museater is a new way of setting up customised visits to a museum, organised like theatre performances using ad-hoc augmented reality stages. First used in the United States in 2014, museater and the D.R.E.A.M. methodology – Digital Reality and Educational Activities in Museums – is spreading all over the world.
SHU2023 offers you the exceptional opportunity to collaborate for two days with its inventor, the Italian Paolo Russo, as he creates one in the Public Art Gallery of Nocera Umbra, housed in the wonderful former church of San Francesco.
You can participate in three ways:
Participation is free of charge and allows access to the other sites of the Nocera Umbra museum system: the Archaeological Museum and the Civic Tower!
Learn how to stage a museum performance, assisting Dr. Russo and his team in their work.
At the end of the two days you will understand what a museater is, how to design the path, script the narrative, create digital content suitable for use with immersive technologies, create the digital set design and lead a visit as a museum guide.
Particularly suitable for museum educators, school teachers of all levels, university and secondary school students interested in an integrated approach between digital technologies and the humanities.

FILL THE ONLINE FORM TO REGISTER: Participation in both days is recommended, but it is possible to attend only one day. A certificate of attendance will be issued.
Become part of the artwork by sharing your original reactions to it in any digital format: video, audio, images, comics.
You can share your own artistic effort, useful information, educational content, thought, judgement. There is no wrong content, if it expresses your original reaction related to the works present or the place.
Anyone is welcome to contribute and can stay as long as necessary to follow your inspiration.
OPEN ACCESS: To enter, you must have a #SHU2023 pass or book directly at the entrance of the Municipal Art Gallery.
Take part as a visitor in one of the approximately 30-minute tours organised at regular intervals during the day.
See the museater behind the scenes before it is officially opened to the public and help us test its services to the public. If you discover an unknown bug, we will reward you with a CRHACK LAB gadget!
