Description

Nik Honeysett, CEO of Balboa Park Online Collaborative in San Diego presented his talk “Our Enchanted Future” to an audience of almost 1,900 cultural professionals in August 2016, as part of the “Tessitura’s Innovator Series Live at TLCC” session at the 2016 Tessitura Learning & Community Conference (TLCC2016) in Washington DC. There has never been a better time to be in education and interpretation in the museum field. If current examples of the use of Augmented and Virtual Reality, Haptic Feedback, Creative Coding and the Internet of Things are anything to go by, the cultural experience of the future will be a jaw-dropping mixture of education and entertainment, with a heavy dollop of magic. Using compelling examples from the field and the predictive powers of the Cone of Plausibility, Nik takes the viewer on an unforgettable ride. Strap in and brace yourself for a glimpse into our enchanted future.
