Friday 14 February, 10am – 4:30pm
Museum of London, Docklands
Is your museum making the most of its digitised collections content online? Finding the right channel, tone, voice and techniques to reach and connect with audiences online isn’t easy. This workshop is rooted in practicalities but brings in strategic considerations too.
We’ll look at mission, identity and purpose; explore the specific tensions and challenges that digital storytelling with collections content brings and also focus on the many advantages that museums and collections have in this space. We’ll share a wide range of examples from museums, galleries and beyond, looking at social media, websites and other platforms. We’ll give you plenty of food for thought, practical tips and ideas to take away and try. Our workshops are friendly and informal, encouraging active learning and plenty of discussion.
Who is it for?
Staff/volunteers from London and South East museums may attend free of charge (max of two per museum). Whether you’re just beginning to tell your museum’s stories online or looking for ways to improve an existing offer and levels of engagement this workshop is for you. It’s suitable for a wide range of practitioners at all skill levels, from beginners to more advanced, whether your focus is curation, learning, marketing, engagement or something completely different.
This workshop will be led by Culture24’s Digital Programmes Manager Janet Alderman and Editor & Content Manager Richard Moss.
