Soapbox! The Audience Speaks

Soapbox! The Audience Speaks | Designing for participation within heritage | Scoop.it

Museum of Photographic Arts, El Prado San Diego, CA 92101

 

Soapbox! is MOPA's first crowd-sourced exhibition that uses engaging new technology and interactive processes to allow visitors the opportunity to rate images both online and in the gallery. Visitors will curate Soapbox! from a random selection of 120 images from MOPA’s permanent collection. The group of 120 images covers a broad spectrum of our permanent collection, and contains numerous works that have never been on display at MOPA. The data gathered from visitor ratings will culminate in Soapbox! an exhibition that will truly reflect our visitors’ aesthetic preferences.

Google Hangouts: Live Video Chatting between Museums & Online Communities

Google Hangouts: Live Video Chatting between Museums & Online Communities | Designing for participation within heritage | Scoop.it

"In the past several months, many museums have begun using live video chat as a way to enhance and foster new online discussions and interactions between museum educators and the public. One of the most popular tools has been Google Hangouts which is part of the Google+ social network. It allows for up to 10 users to video chat together and gives them the ability to broadcast the video stream live to a large audience and even record the session for future viewing. The recorded video, which is archived on the museum’s G+ page and YouTube channel, can be shared on various social networks. In addition, the videos collect (limited) analytics information so museums can track the attention it receives. Users who express interest in a museum video session ahead of time can be alerted when it is about to begin via Google+ email messaging."

dynamoscopio – Community Mapping

dynamoscopio – Community Mapping | Designing for participation within heritage | Scoop.it

Lo scopo di ‘Community Mapping’ è avviare un processo di scambio fra competenze e di convergenza fra abitanti, dove sia la comunità stessa a riconoscere e mappare le proprie sapienze come risorsa culturale per la convivenza, la trasformazione del territorio e la città intera.

‘Community Mapping’ è composto da cicli laboratoriali, che utilizzano strumenti creativi differenti sia nel processo e sia nelle restituzioni pubbliche con lo scopo di realizzare una mappatura di comunità in divenire.

Il primo ciclo di ‘Community Mapping’ si sviluppa tra maggio e dicembre 2013, con un laboratorio di mappatura audiovisiva del quartiere Giambellino-Lorenteggio. Tale laboratorio si propone di raccontare la polifonia interculturale del territorio, attraverso la composizione di percorsi audiovisivi e paesaggi sonori.

Al termine del laboratorio, i partecipanti sono invitati ad elaborare un prodotto audiovisivo e sonoro fruibile ai cittadini e a presentarlo al territorio all’interno di un evento cittadino.

DPLA Digital Public Library of America

DPLA Digital Public Library of America | Designing for participation within heritage | Scoop.it
sara radice's insight:

"DPLA is the work of people who understand that design is not just icing on the digital cake, but a significant (even decisive) factor in how we engage with content in the first place. They have made available an application program interface (API) for the site, which is a very useful thing indeed, according to my source in the geek community. With the API, users can create new tools for sorting and presenting the library’s materials. Combine it with a geolocation API, for example, and you could put together an application displaying the available photographs of the street you are on, organized decade by decade".

Technology in museums turns visitors into curators and creators (Wired UK) | Designing for participation within heritage | Scoop.it
Museums and galleries should be using new technologies and media to teach, engage and immerse visitors in the art they are viewing, says Local Projects founder Jake Barton.

Speaking at Wired 2012 about the future of cities, Barton explained how he was given the opportunity to help the Cleveland Museum of Art achieve this using touchscreens, live cameras and video, turning visitors into the curators of their own experience in the process.

A Video Storytelling Archive: Great People Relive Unique Memories at Web of Stories | Designing for participation within heritage | Scoop.it

 

Robin Good: Web of Stories is a free web site service which collects and organizes great people recounting key memories in video. Web of Stories also provides an opportunity for anyone to record, upload and share their own story in a video clip.

 

Record your story here: http://www.webofstories.com/record

 

On the site, you can already find plenty of videos of famous scientists, authors, movie makers and artists telling their stories through video.

 

Thematic channels: http://www.webofstories.com/channels

 

Telling stories, to help others understand an idea or comprehend what your product / service is all about, is increasingly being recognized as one of the best approaches to convey information in a mode that can be easily followed and absorbed.

 

P.S.: Web of Stories has lots of interesting clips, but nonetheless the opportunity for viewers to vote and rate such videos, navigation and access to the collection best parts remains yet an area in which major imporvements can be done.

 

Try it now: http://www.webofstories.com/

"When is Ask a Curator?

It’s an all day event on September 19th on Twitter.

What is Ask a Curator?

It’s a way to talk to curators and people who work in cultural venues you normally don’t have access to. You can ask anything that you’re curious about or want more information on.

What’s it’ like to be a curator?

How do you decide what to display?

What is the most unique object in your collection?

Secrets of a Museum Social Media Manager — Media Lab — Walker Art Center

Secrets of a Museum Social Media Manager — Media Lab — Walker Art Center | Designing for participation within heritage | Scoop.it

1. Know your museum, know it well.

2. Your social media person has to be a good writer.

3a. ‘Likes’ and followers matter

3b. Caveat: If your likes go up and your engagement numbers also don’t go up (number of active comments and conversations), that’s a problem.

4. Talk to people.

5a. Make it genuine.

5b. A confession: I’m hyper-aware about the number of messages being sent out from each channel every day.  Probably too much so. People don’t mind if you post several times on Facebook in a day, as long as those posts are spread out a little bit, but I’m very sensitive about it.

5c. What is doing it right? Paying attention to Twitter, what’s trending nationally, internationally (to a certain extent, don’t talk about pop stars in scandals), and within your sphere.

5d. The argument for different voices is a consistent argument.

Social media is a hard sell for heritage professionals not already engaged in on-line activities for their personal life, especially so for Twitter.  One reason to consider social media is its ability to reach new audiences and build a following to create buzz.  For this, Twitter is ideal because of its instant access and user demographics. ...

Koori Voices: Bunjilaka

Koori Voices: Bunjilaka | Designing for participation within heritage | Scoop.it

This exhibition celebrates the diversity of a culture that has withstood the impact of colonisation for nearly two hundred years.

It reveals a history of Victoria that has been hidden, even denied, for over 170 years.

Koori Voices tells the stories of Aboriginal people since the arrival of the British in the 1830s. It also looks at the impact of colonisation and the way in which Aboriginal people have struggled to maintain their culture.

Some stories speak of brutality, oppression and hardship. Other stories recall the struggles and joys of daily life.

MoMA | Meta Monumental Garage Sale | Designing for participation within heritage | Scoop.it

For her first solo exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York–based artist Martha Rosler presents her work Meta-Monumental Garage Sale, a large-scale version of the classic American garage sale, in which Museum visitors can browse and buy second-hand goods organized, displayed, and sold by the artist. The installation fills MoMA’s Marron Atrium with strange and everyday objects donated by the artist, MoMA staff, and the general public, creating a lively space for exchange between Rosler and her customers as they haggle over prices.
