Online workshop October 13 Youth audience engagement during COVID: digital ideas and methods – The GLAMers Project

Online workshop October 13 Youth audience engagement during COVID: digital ideas and methods

How did some of the world’s most innovative cultural organizations work with young people during the pandemic? How can you bring their new ideas and lessons-learned into your own work?

On Wednesday, October 13 I’ll be leading a free training/professional-development workshop,
« Youth audience engagement during COVID: digital ideas and methods. »

This workshop arises from the findings of an EU-funded research project by Web2Learn that looked at over 90 GLAM initiatives (Gallery, Library, Archive, Museum) produced during the pandemic.

(The full study, including 15 terrific and easy-to-use one-page project summaries, is available here: https://glamers.eu.)

Participants will hear case studies from speakers representing Belgian, Dutch, Croatian, and Finnish projects — then we will dive deep into a playful/interactive workshop mode to explore the 4 main digital design and engagement themes found in the study:

1. Designing for tactile, hands-on activities
2. Designing with « easy » technologies
3. Using the « make, share, and show » pattern
4. Using pandemic/youth initiatives to drive internal/organizational change

Speakers include Marta Kulis Aralica and Vedrana Ceranja of the Croatian Museum of Arts and Crafts; Maria Vähäsarja of EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art ; Erik Boekesteijn of the National Library of the Netherlands (KB) Storyhouse; and Katerina Zourou, director of Web2Learn and producer of #theGLAMers research study.

The event is free and hosted by Europeana.

Register here, and see you there!
