June Meetup: Back to the future: non-profit histories via social media...

Non-profit history via the Facebook timeline?

Twitter re-enactments?

Archives in Flickr groups?

Join us for a focus on how non-profit organisations are increasingly using social media to bring their rich and varied history to our attention and engagement.




David Govier and Kate Sutton from Archives+ will talk about how archives can get involved in online engagement work including sharing images and encouraging user generated contect via Flickr and Twitter. They will showcase joint projects between Archives+ and the department of Art Gallery and Museum Studies at the University of Manchester such as historical treasure hunts and hosting Twitter radio shows which help bring archives to life for new audiences.

Lynette Cawthra from the Working Class Movement Library will join us to discuss how they have used social media to engage, including a recent Twitter re-enactment of the Battle of Bexley Square.

Leslie Holmes will also be on hand to discuss how Salford Lads' Club are utilising their rich history and archives via the web - including Facebook Timelines, Youtube channels and, of course, pictures of Smiths fans in Storify!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
