Create your own digital museum exhibition and showcase your work in a virtual space. ArtStep is an online platform that allows you to curate a variety of different media and lets your audience explore and learn from the comfort of their homes. This is a great and innovative way to showcase your work online and can be used to create an exhibition that anyone can access anywhere with a click of a link. This software is free to use and is highly versatile, therefore there is great potential for anyone who is willing to put in the time to create this online showcase.
This software has a pretty low barrier of entry so the creation of this online space can be done by anyone, even young students, even if some facilitation may be required. We will include video tutorials on how to use this software in the videos below.
- Adult citizens
- Children 7-12
You can do it with all those groups, but we did it with professionals from different fields like public engagement or the cultural and creative sector.
As we continue to shift to online and hybrid formats, this platform is a fantastic way of incorporating a large amount of information and media into a single online space and can easily be shared with a wide audience.
This format also allows an audience to learn more and engage with the content they are more interested in, as well as an opportunity for audiences to revisit content at their own pace.
To get the most of this platform, you will need a large amount of content to fill your online gallery. This can be done by yourself, or by sourcing information and media from others. It is recommended that you view the video tutorials to quickly gain an understanding of how to create your space and to get the most out of this software.
Each of your exhibits will require some text to accompany it, to explain the rationale behind it and any additional information you would like to share about your work. This can be done either via text or a short video.
When you have completed your online VR tour, share the link to your creation with your audience with a brief explanation of how best they can experience it, either simply via a computer or smart device, or using a VR headset.
