We've probably all experienced the "quick website" build project that takes up far longer than expected....
Or maybe we've all registered and set up a project blog that has been quickly neglected...
Or - perhaps you now just maintain a lightweight web presence via services such as Twitter and Flavors.me ?
Our focus this month will be on web presences for non-profits. To share some insight will be Kate Fox from the WeMakeJam project. As Kate explains:
"WeMakeJam is a Nominet Trust-funded project based within Manchester digital agency Stardotstar. The project is creating a platform to enable not-for-profits and community groups to build and manage effective websites. Over the past few months, the project has been working with a fantastic group of co-design partners from charities and community groups, and has deployed vast amounts of paper and felt tips, to create prototype websites and develop a tried and tested recipe for online sustainability. During that process we've been thinking a lot about the elements of not-for-profit websites, and trying to boil things down to the essentials in order to create sites that work hard, but aren't hard work to maintain. We've also been considering how the development of social media has impacted on the nature of your own website - has its role changed? How can organisations best organise themselves to manage digital communications across a range of platforms?
We'd like to share our experiences so far, but we'd also like to hear from others how they think of their own website these days, and how they've utilised other tools to be in several places at once!"
Come along at 6.30pm at MadLab to find out more, and join the discussion...
