Shakertown at Pleasant Hill Kentucky Inc. (Harrodsburg, KY 40330-9218)
Jacob Glover (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
Expanding Digital Humanities at SVPH

Retention of three full-time staff members and external contractors to digitize archival collections, complete the augmented reality experience of the site, and produce an orientation film.

Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill (SVPH) seeks relief funding from The National Endowment for the Humanities for a multi-faceted digital humanities project and the retention of three humanities staff members. This project proposes two activities critical to SVPH's mission and organizational strategy. First, this project will provide funding for continued digitization of the objects collection as well as digital publication of the collection for public access. Second, this project will provide funding for the creation of 40 audiovisual elements that will be used in an interactive augmented reality experience available to guests through an app on personal devices, and for the creation of an orientation film. The audiovisual elements and film fulfill a dual purpose with both on-site use as well as the ability to share them broadly through digital and social media channels. Both projects will engage our audience in a deeper examination of the Pleasant Hill Shakers.
