We are delighted to welcome Kristian Downer from Dowsocial for a session on ‘Demystifying Social Media for small museums’
Or, if you are a competent social media user already –
Stuart Howe (Fenland Network steering group and Fen Edge Heritage Centre) will run a smaller discussion session on the recent technical changes in Facebook and what they might mean for our museums.
Joint Marketing opportunities:
We will be looking at the Peterborough 900 celebrations and the Fen Edge Trail as opportunities for joint marketing for Fenland Museums
Leaflet exchange: Please bring along a supply of your leaflets if you would like to exchange with others.
We will include a slot for museums to do 5 minute updates on their museums for any projects, or general information about their sites they would like to share. If you are interested in taking one of these slots please contact Sally Ackroyd at the SHARE Museums East team. Sally.firstname.lastname@example.org
As usual, we will discuss topics the network might like to look at next and activities it wants to undertake.
We will also be looking for offers of new members for the steering group to help run the network.
For an enlightening but comical view of social media try this Simon Evans Jokenomics radio show ‘Social Media’ to whet your appetite
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
