Traces Trial / Treial Olion

What it’s all about?

We are looking for people to come and experience Traces Olion, at St Fagans National Museum of History. It’s a site-specific storytelling app produced by yello brick in collaboration with National Museum Wales and Cardiff University. We’re interested in finding out what you think about the project, so we can measure the impact it has had.

What We Need You To Do

We will need you to come to St Fagans, try the app, and answer a few questions about your experience. This will take about 90 minutes.

We can offer £25 to cover your time and travel expenses.

We have a limited number of places available.

Sessions are available on the following dates:

  • Friday 9th March
  • Saturday 10th March
  • Sunday 11th March

How do I get involved?

If you’d like to attend a session, please register below.
Each time slot is for two people, which means that on the day, you might be asked to use the app alone or be partnered with another participant.
If after registering you realise that you cannot attend, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can allocate your space to someone else.
