Exploiting Digital and Social Media. Past, Present, and Future
On 25th February IT4Arts will be hosting a workshop on Exploiting Digital and Social Media. Past Present and Future.
Since IT4Arts was founded in 2005, IT and particularly social media and digital have been used extensively by arts organisations. These platforms have enabled them to build a close relationship with their audiences. Ten years on, we would like to take stock and review how effective these efforts have been, and contemplate what might be the direction for the future.
When: Thursday 25th February 2016, starting at 10.00am, ending at 4.00pm.
Where: The Free Word Centre, 60 Farringdon Road, London, EC1R 3GA
Videos of the talks are available on WCIT’s YouTube channel here.
