One of our Arts Council England-funded Sector Support programme workshops, provided in partnership with London and South East Museums Development.
Leading a Digitally Literate Museum
Friday 15 November, 10am – 4.30pm
Museum of London, London Wall
Is your museum leadership team confident when it comes to digital? Are they as digitally literate as our fast-changing world requires? The opportunities around digital culture can be huge but it’s a fast-changing, multi-layered environment that is a challenge for many museums to exploit. A thriving, successful museum needs a digitally literate workforce that understands the ways in which digital technologies, content and culture can best serve their mission. It’s down to museum leadership to create the right conditions to meet those challenges.
This one-day workshop will combine strategy, theory and expert insight with practical advice and peer support. Themes covered include:
- Digital literacy – what this means for museums and why it matters
- Mission and purpose – the impact digital culture is having on museums and how to meet the needs of your team, audiences, collections and mission
- Sector developments – how to make the most of new (free) strategic initiatives and resources to support digital development in your setting
- Being experimental – driving evidence-based change through iterative practices to build digital capacity.
This session is open to museums from both the London region and the South East region, and will be led by Culture24 CEO Jane Finnis and Content & Partnerships Director Anra Kennedy.
