Novel approaches to engagement activities that use narrative and immersive environments to create cohesive experiences.

In this session we will share our insights, experiences and learning from some of the unique festival experiences created in 2013 by the Contemporary Science team at the Science Museum. These festivals ranged from narrative driven games to researchers embedded in immersive environments all creating cohesive and memorable experiences. Specific engagement examples will highlight collaborations with research groups, theatre companies and artists. This session is relevant to any organisation, centre or individual looking to engage their audiences through interactive, immersive and theatrical experiences.

Speakers: Nicola Burghall (Science Museum), Daniel Richardson (UCL), John Hunter (non zero one), Chair: Jenny Jopson (Francis Crick Institute)
