‘Online Exhibitions: Low cost, Big results’ – Strategies, tools and training for doing it yourself

Bruxelles - dal 16-09-2010 al 17-09-2010

Final conference for one of ENCATC’s other European projects, “Digital Extra”. More and more museums are looking at the importance of getting their collections online and available to a wider audience. The question is, how should this task be accomplished? Museums have the content for sure, but do they have the skills, resources and financial means to create an online exhibition? This major international event organsied by ENCATC will take place in Brussels on the 16th of September 2010 and will offer you the opportunity to learn about the project’s findings and network with other professionals in the cultural and ICT/media sectors. Taking place at the Royal Library of Belgium, situated in the heart of Brussels, you will be only a few minutes from many of the city’s major museums and its historical centre. The second day of the conference, on September 17th, the project partners are proposing a workshop where participants may produce their first digital exhibition. Many institutions think more and more about doing a part of their public relations on the internet. More traditional forms require costly resources and are often only visible for a limited time. Moreover, many of the smaller institutions have hidden treasures in their collections, but because of financial restrictions may not be able to reach a larger audience. The “Digital Extra” project offers to sort out this problem. By creating a kind of toolkit to help create small, concise, well-presented online exhibition projects, Digital Extra has developed basic and advanced training courses that use simple methods to produce professional results. This event will provide the opportunity to learn about these training courses, techniques, strategies, and best e-practices that could be most useful when creating your online exhibitions. To register for this event, please go to ENCATC’s website: www.encatc.org/register/ An official invitation letter from Magnus Ericsson, the Digital Extra Project Coordinator – Jämtland County Museum (Jamtli)- is here attached as well as a practical guide for more information about the conference. The deadline to register is 12 September 2010. Please note that there are a number of limited places available for the workshop on Friday, September 17. Places will go to those who register first.
