Thanks to those of you who were able to make it to our Digital Fundraising meetup at Pivotal Labs last week. We had some really fantastic presentations from Big Duck, The Whitney Museum and Kickstarter, as well as what I thought was a really helpful and inspiring conversation on digital fundraising tools and strategies.
Many of you have been asking for the presentation slides from the evening. The folks from The Whitney haven't had a chance to get theirs up yet (they had to rush off to the Museum Computer Network conference!) but will in the next few days. However, you can find the slides from Big Duck and Kickstarter below.
In other news, it looks like we're about 90% locked in for an ArtsTech Holiday Party/3 Year Anniversary celebration on December 19th. Save the date! More details to come within the next week ro so, but if you're looking to get involved in preparation and planning, do let me know!
As before, we'll be looking for some digital and/or interactive art to display. If you're interesting in showcasing your work, get in touch!
Thanks and have a great weekend and a very happy (and tasty!) Thanksgiving!
This group is designed to explore the ways in which social media and technology can help bring arts and culture to the masses. "Democratizing" the arts has been a long-standing goal in the art world, and no medium makes it more feasible than the web.
The purpose of this meetup is to bring together those working at the intersection of arts and technology to share ideas, strategies, successes, challenges and failures, and to explore the following questions:
- How can the new technology available help raise awareness about the arts and enrich the audience experience?
- How can cultural institutions interact and engage with each other and their audience in meaningful ways?
- What can they learn from their audience and how can they use this knowledge to improve the way in which they present their content?
- As well as countless others that we hope to uncover at future meetups!
