Google Hangouts: Live Video Chatting between Museums & Online Communities

Google Hangouts: Live Video Chatting between Museums & Online Communities | Museums and Digital Media | 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."

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?

How Going Viral Has Changed Art | The Creators Project

How Going Viral Has Changed Art | The Creators Project | Museums and Digital Media | Scoop.it
How memes and viral culture have changed the art world, for better or worse. In a time when likes, reblogs, and favorites determine what gets seen and what doesn’t, all cultural products, movies, music, writing, and visual art alike, exist in an economy of attention. Instead of critical regard or placement in the right magazines, the most obvious metric of a piece of art’s success is how many eyeballs it attracts and how quickly it gets spread on the internet.

Artists and Digital: Why Social Media Is the New Gallery

Artists and Digital: Why Social Media Is the New Gallery | Museums and Digital Media | Scoop.it

"The starving artist is such a cliche, and fortunately, it might become a thing of the past. Using social media tools and platforms, visual artists have new ways to market their work and connect with buyers far and wide. And because these websites are free to use, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram are quickly becoming as important to an artist as the paintbrush and palette."
