[ecrea] Drones for heritage communication PhD opportunities at University of Brighton

  Drones for heritage communication and audience development

    Project in brief

This PhD project critically explores how drone technology could inform an audience development framework for heritage institutions, especially around diversification of audiences and innovative ways of engaging with heritage culture. It asks about the potential socio-economic benefits for the heritage sector of drawing on commercial and civic models (eg drone film festivals, drone races, science/geek family days out) around drone technologies. It also considers what mediator role the heritage sector could play between the legal context, commercial exploitation and end-user engagement around drone technology. The methodology will include desk-based research and expert interviews, leading to a preliminary model.

The drone technology experimentation and field work phase will test this model in partnership with the heritage/industry partners. The audience/user perspective will be captured through observations and interviews. The analysis will map out opportunities, barriers and potential partnership models for innovation and collaboration between the drone culture industry and the heritage sector.
