Project Title: Hemingfield Colliery in the 19th Century
Applicant: Iain Nicholls
Grant Awarded: £2000
Working with Friends of Hemingfield Colliery the project will recreate a virtual reality experience of going down a 19th Century colliery based on Hemingfield.
It will be suitable for ages 7 upwards. There will be a descriptive voiceover by poet Ian McMillan giving historical facts and descriptions of mining conditions at that time.
The virtual reality (VR) content once created can be easily converted to other mediums such as walkthroughs and 360 degree video to help generate publicity and raise awareness of the Friends of Hemingfield Colliery restoration project.
