A fun introduction to the JQ Cemeteries and JQ Townscape Heritage projects with immersive VR experiences and a quiz to test your knowledge from the comfort of your home!
How to take Part
1. Watch Jewellery Quarter Talk Show
Join Ruth and Cecilia, students from BCU School of Jewellery, as they chat to Kate and Josie from two heritage projects which are happening in the Jewellery Quarter and learn more about the fascinating history of the area.
2. Explore Virtual Reality Experiences
JQ Townscape Heritage and JQ Cemeteries have worked with ScanTech Digital to create interactive experiences which allow users to explore the Alabaster & Wilson jewellery factory and Key Hill Cemetery in vivid detail. Can be used on your mobile, computer or VR headset for a fully immersive experience!
3. Take the Quarter Quiz
Use the quiz in conjunction with the VR tours to encourage deeper exploration. We recommend that you have the VR tours open while you take the quiz.
If you enjoyed this talk show and taking part in these activities, there are loads of other interesting places to visit and learn about in the Jewellery Quarter.
You can download these beautifully illustrated brochures for free, also created by Ruth and Cecilia.
Available in English and Mandarin Chinese. The brochures contain colour illustrations so the files are large – we recommend waiting until you have access to Wi-Fi to download them.
