Hastings Digital Museum

Hastings Digital Museum has received funding to continue into 2021. We will be developing new activities so online visitors will continue to have access to meaningful digital culture. 

We will be developing new online learning activities, including digital loans boxes and more blended learning sessions. We will also be developing a new website. This funding means we can continue our work with vulnerable groups and support community partners.

We are being supported by Art Fund and public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

3D Object Scanning

We are looking to commission a company or individual to produce 3D scans of objects. The scans will be used in blended learning workshops which combine physical and digital museum collections for schools and education providers. They will be included in the museum's loan boxes and made available on the museum's updated website.

We will work with the appointed contractor to identity suitable objects for scanning. It is very likely that these objects will be the same or similar to those already included within our current loan boxes.
