Arts organisations were today urged to be at the forefront of digital innovation and go beyond the traditional focus on live cultural experiences as audiences move from consumption to participation.
The topic was addressed at the launch of Four Arts’ new digital offering, where speakers including Hasan Bakhshi, Director of Nesta’s Creative Industries Unit and co-author of the recent groundbreaking Culture of Innovation report, offered valuable insight and practical advice about harnessing the power of social media and other interactive platforms to create cultural experiences, increase search engine optimisation and evaluate results.
“Arts organisations have such fantastic content to offer audiences online but need to innovate digitally to engage a wider and broader range of people as technology becomes the biggest competitor for leisure time,” says Four Arts Account Director Justin Pledger. “By offering practical tips and advice with this event we aim to de-mystify the whole process and work with arts organisations to further develop their strategy.”
