Fostering Your Museum’s Online Community

Over the past two years, many museums have experimented with wide ranging and innovative digital programming and in the process have gained new digital skills, content libraries and audiences. As museums reopen and attempt to balance in-person and digital programming, how can you not only retain your new audiences but also grow them and create deeper, more meaningful relationships among them? In this talk, Kelly Cannon will share concrete tactics and examples of building community online by leveraging programs and content to meaningfully connect your constituents, foster participation and a sense of belonging, and support institutional revenue goals.
