Youth audience engagement during COVID: digital ideas and methods from The GLAMers
Based on The GLAMers, an EU-funded initiative that studied over 90 digital youth-engagement initiatives across Europe, this lively, interactive three hour workshop will teach attendees how to implement a variety of digital audience engagement techniques that have emerged within the GLAM and cultural sector during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This three hour immersive workshop will serve as an opportunity to reflect on practical implementation of audience engagement, especially of youth audiences, in this highly unpredictable context of the pandemic.
Authors of the GLAMers study and experts from participating GLAM institutions will share their knowledge and insights through case studies and hands-on exercises. Examples will be featured from a wide spectrum of GLAM and cultural organisations throughout Europe, including both small and large institutions and those with varying degrees of digital maturity.
In this workshop attendees will learn:
- How to use easy, low-cost platforms for youth engagement
- How to develop and deliver tactile, hands-on activities to families and young learners through the web
- How to use “make, share, and show” techniques to reduce isolation and highlight the creativity of the crowd
- How to start a new digital initiative within your GLAM, and how use the pandemic crisis as an opportunity to stimulate internal change
This workshop is an activity of The GLAMers EU-funded project and part of a series of events and workshops on digital youth engagement for the GLAMers project, starting with an introductory webinar on September 29.
