SOCIAL MEDIA KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE[Visit the Project page]
To stand out, one cannot not just be different. One must be different, well. In the social media world, it's often museums that drive creative attempts at engagement, experimenting with new ways to reach even wider audiences. London is the epicenter of Britain's museum world, with dozens of galleries and museums within walking distance of one another, and it's also the core of Britain's creative industry. With so much so close, it's the perfect opportunity to tap some of that innovative wisdom by peeking in on the digital strategies used by museums to engage the public and then transfer that knowledge to early career researchers (ECRs) looking to expand their outreach skills.
Through a series of short videos and blog post, this project goes to the heart of the best social media campaigns put out by London's museums in 2012-2013 and brings the strategies to life.
