Dr. Licia Calvi is a Senior Lecturer and Researcher at the Breda University in the Netherlands. Her research is focussed on museum experience design and the use of digital storytelling for cultural heritage. She has been experimenting with various technology (VR and AR, mixed media) and applied the notion of performance to inform the design of interactions in public and semi-public settings, like museums. Projects she has recently worked on include the „Becoming Vincent“ project and Van Gogh Oculus Rift project for the Van Gogh celebration in 2015, the World War II heritage sites project for Brabant Remembers and the Creative Europe project Traces, on helping museums reach out to new audiences through storytelling and technology. Some of her work on museum experience design has in 2018 appeared in a curated book that she has co-edited for the Springer series in Cultural Computing. Currently, she is involved in the Horizon 2020 project ‘SmartCulTour’.
