Manchester Art Gallery is trialling QR codes in its Remembering Slavery: Revealing History display. From 1-29 March visitors will be able to use their mobile phones to retrieve specially designed web pages. The pages invite visitors to submit comments on six works on show, and listen to and read poems and comments on some of the objects. More information on the display here.
Julian Tomlin (a freelance consultant who is undertaking a review of machine-readable technologies in museums) has extended an open invitation to go to the Gallery on Mosley Street, Manchester on Saturday 1 March when there will be advisors on hand to offer guidance and discuss your thoughts on this emerging technology.
