One of our Arts Council England-funded Sector Support programme workshops, provided in partnership with West Midlands Museums Development.
Thursday 11 April, 10am – 4.30pm
Birmingham Hippodrome B5 4TB
Join Culture24 to explore how your museum can make 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. The 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.
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.
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.
Priority will be given to delegates from non-NPO museums which are Accredited or officially Working Towards Accreditation. Maximum of two delegates per museum.
*UPDATE – this workshop is now fully booked, but you can join the waiting list via the West Midlands Museum Development website.*
Culture24 is currently planning further ACE-funded Sector Support programme workshops with Museum Development Service regions throughout England.
