We began development with a Glamkit-based CMS for the Know My Name initiative which implemented a visual design from Studio Ongarato and laid the foundations of NGA’s new approach to relationship-driven, modular, digital content.
The next step has been an audio tours app for the Botticelli to Van Gogh exhibition – built into the same CMS, which integrates the Gallery’s new collections API to present artwork images and metadata.
As NGA staff have progressed through their own, internal discovery and strategy process to crystallise their aspirations, we have conducted a data discovery process in parallel – uncovering sources of data and possibilities for integrating, interconnecting and enriching them. This gives us a more complete picture of possibilities beyond the current project.
The current stage is the development and launch of a new web platform integrating all prior stages, which will be public before the end of 2021. Further stages will extend the backend integrations into other systems in order of priority.
