Storytelling and Interpretation
Vision Fountain partner with museums, galleries, community groups, developers and artists to deliver innovative and immersive audio-visual projects and interpretation.
The stories are achieved by immersing ourselves in the history and communities of their origin. We have 25 years of award winning photo-journalistic and investigative experience behind us to tease-out the stories that matter to the public. Working alongside local communities, and local museums and using the most advanced technology we deliver story-telling in a new and exciting way that resonates.
Projects aim to re-inforce the importance of place, local culture, heritage and the arts, through creative workshops.
We are currently working alongside Rhondda Heritage Park and The Museum of Wales (Waterfront) delivering Last Voices of The Rhondda / Kings of The Underground exhibits. The project records oral testimonies and 3D portraits of Welsh miners. Outreach introduces local heritage to young learners via advanced 3D gaming technology and the arts. The digital assets will be stored in the national archive.
