Brown Bag Seminar Series: Wed 24th March 2010

This week's Brown Bag comes from Wendy Earle at the British Film Institute,

"Audience Appeal
Museums, technology and cultural policy in the 21st century

Culture Online was a unique government funded project with a transformative vision to use online digital technologies to make the assets of publicly funded cultural institutions more accessible to a wider public. Every Object Tells a Story was an innovative museum-based project to engage audiences online, initiated by the V&A and funded by Culture Online. At the heart of both projects was the commitment to using the opportunities represented by online digital technologies to engage wider audiences and encouraging audience participation in cultural activity. However, each project took a very different starting point and the contrast between them raises some interesting issues about the problems and possibilities of audience engagement in the museum and archive sector which I will explore in this presentation."

We hope you'll come along! Usual place (School of Museum Studies), usual time (1pm).
