People, Places, Things – Workshop 1 material

Abstract

This practical workshop is about how cultural institutions can connect with their audiences through storytelling. Narratives surrounding cultural production are usually about people (both contemporary and historical); places (existing situations and their connections with the past); and things (artefacts and collections). This masterclass addresses specific issues faced by cultural institutions today, using storytelling along with the latest digital tools and techniques, to ask questions and come up with potential answers.

Each participant brought a real question or problem to the masterclass. First, case studies and projects involving best practices and outcomes created a framework for our investigations. We then familiarized participants with readily available tools that are currently in use in a wide variety of cultural settings, prioritizing easily accessible ones such as open hardware, crowdsourcing, google mapping and geotagging tools, social media, etc. We broke into small groups to apply “toolkit” to the specific problems brought by the participants, who then developed innovative solutions and a plan to implement them.

The museums communications toolbox

The toolbox was developed by the workshop team and illustrated by Leo Cardini of Flod.
