Innovation Workshops

Artefacto offer customised innovation workshops that are designed to support gallery, library, archive and museum staff in developing new and sustainable services and applying methodologies that support these new approaches and help to meet changing user needs.

Using design thinking and lean startup methodologies, we work with small groups to take them from idea to prototype.

Introduction to Maker technologies for staff

A short introductory course for library, museum and gallery staff interested in makerspaces and digital making. This course will help you learn practical skills about maker technologies (including Raspberry Pi, Micro:Bit, Paper Circuits and more) and how to implement these in your own events.

Creating interactive community spaces

A practical and active course about providing better user experiences and making spaces more engaging and interactive using emerging technologies such as beacons, augmented reality (AR), sensors, digital displays and more.
