This initiative will explore relationships between literary geographies, cultural heritage collections, and real world environments, via the creation of a smartphone geolocation user experience that shares British Library digital content in relevant real-world locations; enabling participants to experience meaningful “poetic” connections between location, history and literature.
CreativeWorks London enables entrepreneurs to collaborate with 38 London-based universities, colleges, museums, libraries and archives on innovative projects.
This is the second time that the British Library has worked with and hosted a resident entrepreneur; as last year CreativeWorks London funded Rob Sherman to be the British Library’s Interactive-Writer-in-Residence attached to the Lines In The Ice exhibition, where he created an immersive transmedia narrative work called On My Wife’s Back.
