Digital Storytelling with a Collections Focus
Friday 14 February, 10am – 4.30pm
Museum of London, Docklands

A partnership event between South East Museum Development, Culture24 and the Museum of London.

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. 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 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. Download a full course outline (PDF 418kb, opens in new tab). Please use our online form to book your place.

The workshop is 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.
