// Event Description
AoDL’s topic for this month will be Digital Project Management and Internal Communications. Developing a new digital project within an arts organisation and seeing it through to launch can be a challenge. Like any sizable undertaking it often involves contributions from each staff area – development, editorial/curation, digital, marketing, tech and venue management. This then has to be extended out to artists, audiences, partner organisations and quite possibly external agencies. With so many parties involved, it can rapidly generate a complex map of activity and you can find yourself having yet another meeting about a meeting.
How does an organisation keep all the plates spinning without losing the plot?
To find out we will spend this month investigating infrastructures, tools and systems that can help. They rarely receive top billing, but things such as Intranets, scheduling, task management and communication tools, as well as forms of project development (such as ‘Agile’), can make the world of project management a better place!
The AoDL meetups are presented by Mute in partnership with The Photographers' Gallery and Shakespeare's Globe
