The audio tour as audio immersive experience in the Rijksmuseum’s Slavery exhibition

The Slavery exhibition at the Rijksmuseum revolves around ten true and personal stories about enslaved people and slave owners, people who resisted, and people who were brought to the Netherlands in slavery. The exhibition includes objects, and the audio tour functions as a gateway to oral history, music and poems. Senior educators Frederique van Reij and Irma de Vries talk about how they developed two audio tours, for the general public and children. In this talk they will focus on the concept of the tours, focusing on the ten different stories and bringing together storytelling, sound design, 12 different speakers with a personal approach to the story and the visitor. For the family tour we will discuss how to bring the topic of the exhibition to the age group 8-14, combining digital and analogue tools.
