Nicole Smith


I am a digital heritage expert, specialising in the connections between people and place via the process of heritage and interrogating the potential of creative practice and digital technologies to this end.

I have a background working in the cultural heritage sector, as a curator and as a specialist in digital technology implementation for museums, libraries, archives and art galleries.

I work with locally focused arts and culture organisations, often adopting a participatory action research approach, and am interested in supporting the implementation of co-designed interventions for engaging with archaeology and heritage and in challenging recognition of impact in the arts and humanities.

I have several years’ experience in field archaeology focusing particularly on the relationship between archaeological research, creative practice, and public consumption of the past within the context of the Anthropocene. I have been involved in exhibition design, staging, and evaluation for cultural heritage since 2004.
