The Digital Wallace is an innovative heritage project from the Irish Linen Centre & Lisburn Museum and the Nerve Centre aimed at local 16-25 year olds. As part of the Museum’s bicentenary exhibition celebrating the life of Sir Richard Wallace (1818-90), participants explored Wallace’s lasting legacy in Lisburn through a range of exciting digitals tools such as 3D printing, 3D scanning, Augmented Reality (AR) and laser cutting during April.

The Wallace Fountains provide an opportunity to discuss a range of issues, from warfare to welfare, art to philanthropy, as well as Lisburn’s rich heritage. To start a conversation, and to encourage engagement with the fountains the Council worked with post-primary groups across the Council area to create a 3D print of the Grand Fountain in Castle Gardens, Lisburn, which will form part of the Museum’s new Sir Richard Wallace exhibition that opens on the 21st May.
