Beyond the Hashtag: Social History taking on the Social Network

On Monday November 23 at Leeds Discovery Centre, The Social History Curators Group are hosting a seminar exploring and developing new ways to use collections creatively through social media.

This creative and practical day will encourage you to think about using your collections online in new ways. A panel of experts will invigorate how you currently use social media and introduce you to some handy hints and tips to transform how you can engage with your audiences online.

A range of different case studies will be used to provide insights into projects that have cleverly harnessed the power of social media to engage with audiences with collections.

Experts on the day will include, Liz Chadwick and Kitty Ross from Leeds Museums and Galleries, Adrian Murphy from Horniman Museum and Gardens, Helen Farrar of Bradford College Textile Archive, & Sarah C Jane from Falmouth University & University of Exeter’s Penryn Campus

Participants of the seminar are encouraged to bring along a social media idea you would like to develop for your own organisation with help from experts and other delegates.

Tickets for the event are £30 for Members of the Social History Curators Group
£40 Non members
