Future Cemetery

About The Future Cemetery

In 2012, the Grade I listed Victorian Arnos Vale Cemetery got together with the University of Bath’s Centre For Death and Society, learning and production agency Calling the Shots and Clear Design UK. The idea was to deliver a large-scale project that experimented with new approaches like projection, augmented reality and Bluetooth soundscapes to engage visitors with this stunning but sensitive space. The result, The Future Cemetery, was supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council in the form of the REACT Heritage Sandbox. You can find out more about that project here. Since that project completed, the partners have been collaborating on further market research and technology ventures, including the production of a bespoke smart phone app and augmented reality trails.
