Promare Launches Digital Archive Initiative with the Devonport Naval Heritage Centre. Enhancing Access to Maritime History Through 3D Scanning and Social Media Engagement

Promare is thrilled to announce an exciting collaboration with The Devonport Naval Heritage Centre (DNHC) aimed at revolutionising access to our rich collection of maritime artefacts. Spearheaded by heritage professional Adela Hawley and digital outreach and engagement lead Charlotte Ashcroft-Booth, this innovative project will use 3D scanning technology to document and archive objects from the DNHC's extensive collection online.

This initiative aims to make the DNHC's treasured artefacts accessible to a global audience, providing an immersive experience of maritime history like never before. 

Expanding Our Reach and Engaging New Audiences

Hawley’s expertise in heritage preservation, combined with Ashcroft-Booth’s dynamic approach to social media, will drive this initiative forward. Together, they will create captivating social media content and develop a dedicated website showcasing the scanned artefacts. This will not only expand DNHC's reach to a broader online audience but also attract more visitors and volunteers to the Centre.

Join Our Crowdfunding Campaign

To bring this vision to life, we are launching a crowdfunding campaign. We invite you to join us in making maritime history accessible to everyone. Your support will enable us to:

  • Purchase and maintain advanced 3D scanning equipment.
  • Develop an engaging and informative website.
  • Create high-quality social media content to promote the digital archive.
  • Fund ongoing operations and future enhancements to the digital collection.

We welcome contributions of any size. Donors will receive exclusive updates and early access to the digital archive. Major contributors will be featured on our website and in promotional materials.
