Improving digital skills in museums 6/11/2018

Culture24 has announced the first two dates in a series of workshops aimed to improve museums’ digital skills. The initial events are at the Museum of London in partnership with London Museums Development, but there will be further events across the country.  

  • ‘Leading a digitally literate museum’ takes place on 30th November, is aimed at museum leaders and will mix strategy with practical advice.
  • ‘Digital storytelling with a collections focus’ takes place on 7th December and includes a wide range of examples, including websites, social media and other platforms.

  The events are funded by ACE’s Sector Support Programme and are free to participants, but booking is essential. If these first two events are oversubscribed, priority will be given to staff and volunteers at non-national London museums. Museum of London
