We’ve come to the end of an exciting and rewarding three-year project working with nearly 40 museums across the South West to help them develop digital strategies.

The SW Museum Digital Engagement Project, on behalf of the SW Museum Development Programme with funding from Arts Council England, will conclude with a special forum at Bristol’s M-Shed on 26th March, when we bring together some of the museums involved to share what we all learned.

It’s been a fascinating project, and we’ve learned as much  from the museums as they have from us, and we’ve seen many of the museums really take off with their digital engagement as a result.

We’ve also developed and tested a series of tools and measures for museums to develop, manage and track their digital engagement, which we will be using to support other museums going forward.

The forum will  recognise some of the museums where there’s been a digital transformation, as our “digital champions” pass on their experience.

Our work with the museum sector will continue with new projects and on our dedicated museum digital marketing blog – The Digital Museum.
