The 2015 Heritage Jam

Around the project 03/09/2015

The Heritage Jam begun in 2014 under the direction of Dr. Masinton and Dr. Perry of the University of York as a way to bring people together to design and create forward-thinking pieces of heritage visualisation in a short space of time.

In 2015, it welcomed Tara Copplestone and Izzy Bartley to the management team.
With the continued support of the Department of Archaeology at the University of York, the jam will run an online and in person event - with the in-person event running from the 25th - 26th of September at the beautiful King’s Manor whilst the online jam will run from the 20th of August to the 24th of September.

The Heritage Jam is open to anyone interested in the way heritage is visualised: it calls to artists, animators, game designers, programmers, archaeologists, historians, conservators, museum professionals, heritage practitioners, and any interested members of the public to join forces and collaborate. The outcomes of the Jam are hugely varied - ranging from fine art pieces, 3D models and games through to stories, sketches and videos.

The only limits on creation are theme, time and your imagination!
