Today: Our Lincolnshire Web-App Launch

Today Our Lincolnshire is launching our brand new web app, My Lincolnshire Collection.

MLC Banner

The app is accessible via any web-enabled device, and enables users to explore a range of heritage objects from all over Lincolnshire, curating a collection of the county’s heritage according to their own tastes and priorities.

Here’s how to create your Lincolnshire Collection:

Step 1. Choose up to 10 favourites from our 100 specially selected heritage object tiles. Images of these objects have been collected from heritage sites all over the county in the hopes that, in addition to the historical artefacts that draw thousands of visitors to our city centre each year, the collection will also represent Lincolnshire’s lesser-known treasures.

From the panel of 100 images, you can click and drag a tile into your Lincolnshire Collection bar at the top of the page to put it into your collection (don’t worry, you can always drag a tile back out of your Lincolnshire Collection bar if you change your mind).

To get a better look at an image, simply click on its tile to enlarge it. You will also find a description of the object, to help you make the all-important decision of whether or not to select it for your Lincolnshire Collection. Once you’ve finished your collection, click ‘Next’!

Step 2: Tell us in the comments box how or why you chose the objects that you did for your Lincolnshire Collection. Did you go with a specific theme? Or did you choose the objects that appealed visually? We’d love to know!

Step 3: Discover where you can go to find your selections in real life, using our handy map of Lincolnshire – you’ll see that all of your chosen objects have been marked individually according to your Lincolnshire Collection. You could even plan a trip around the county to see them all!

 

Step 4: Share with your friends! Heritage is for everyone, so be sure to spread the goodness.

We hope that you enjoy using our new web app to create your Lincolnshire Collection. If you have any questions about the app that aren’t covered in this post, please feel free to get in touch using the contact form below.

 

 

Perform for Our Lincolnshire!

Interested in performing? Have a view on heritage? Come and join in!

Coming up: workshops in four venues across Lincolnshire as part of the ‘Our Lincolnshire’ project. A series of six weekend workshops are planned in Grantham, Louth, Pinchbeck, and Gainsborough culminating in final performances in late March and early April.

Two theatre companies, Egg Box Theatre and Flickbook Theatre, will be working with volunteers across the county to develop and perform shows informed by what people from Lincolnshire think about heritage.

If you’re interested in taking part, or coming to watch the final performances, find out more below…

The ‘Our Lincolnshire’ performance opportunity is open to absolutely everyone in the county, and the aim is to connect the people of Lincolnshire with their local heritage and the issues relating to heritage that matter to them.

And the best bit? It’s completely free!

You will get to explore, create and perform alongside the theatre companies in your own piece of theatre that will be shown in the final week to a live audience. All you need to take part is an interest in theatre and an open mind…
