The Modern


I was comms director of the Museum of London for eight years. I know my way around just about every London museum and gallery, great and small. Join me to explore their brilliant content - content which tells us so much about ourselves. And discover how museums are changing in a digital age.

Our very best museums include the Design Museum; British Museum; Tate Modern; Tate Britain; V&A; Imperial War Museum and the Cabinet War Rooms.

These museums are changing. They are no longer stuffy places with things in glass cases. Cultural organisations today focus much more on the needs of their audiences. They are are now places to debate; eat; drink; flirt ... or, perhaps, to discover life drawing or tea dancing for the first time. 

Come with me for an in-depth exploration of the museum world's immersive approach to their content and their audiences. Modern cultural organsiations are also experimenting with the potential of the digital future and the use of augmented reality. These are evolving technologies. They have the potential to completely re-define how we think of museums in the 21st century.
