The Nomad Project ( is a Heritage Lottery and Nesta funded initiative to:

- Engage with heritage through digital processes and social activities

- Inspire by using new and creative approaches

- Empower through digital training and literacy

We would like to present our work to date which uses open source technologies such as the Universal Viewer, Mozilla’s A-Frame, and the Mixed Reality Toolkit for the Microsoft HoloLens, while discussing the social impact of making these technologies more accessible for community and independent led organisations.
