“Come Write In” library programs for NaNoWriMo | Library as Incubator Project

“Come Write In” library programs for NaNoWriMo | Library as Incubator Project | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

"The “Come Write In” initiative is a sub-program of NaNoWriMo that encourages writers, or Wrimos, to use libraries as writing studios during NaNoWriMo. The initiative is part active programming, part marketing campaign – meaning that libraries can get involved to whatever degree they are comfortable with and however works best for their programming schedule"

 

> Great initiative for libraries of the future!

Library as Incubator Project - libraries & artists working together

Library as Incubator Project - libraries & artists working together | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

@NorfolkLibs @TheForumNorwich Museums & libraries well placed to collaborate, check out this project http://t.co/yDmoB5BB.

 

The Library as Incubator Project was created by Erinn Batykefer, Laura Damon-Moore, and Christina Endres, three graduate students at the UW-Madison School of Library and Information Studies.

 

The Project highlights the ways that libraries and artists can work together and features:

 

Visual artists, performing artists, and writers who use libraries in their communities for inspiration, information, and as gallery spaceCollections, libraries and library staff that incubate the arts, and the ways that artists can use them effectivelyFree-to-share resources for librarians looking to incubate the arts at their librariesIdeas for artists looking to connect with their communities through library programming

At a time in which both libraries and arts organizations are often having to do more with less, it makes sense for these two parts of our culture to support each other. The Library as Incubator Project calls attention to one of the many reasons libraries are important to our communities and our culture, and provides a dynamic online forum for sharing ideas."
