Digital Engagement Resources

The following resources correspond with areas of work identified as important in 2015’s Digital Needs survey, as well as using data from previous digital projects carried out by SWMD and survey data from national surveys such as the R+D Fund for the Arts. The documents and links below are designed to be helpful – offering support to museums looking to improve the way they engage digitally with their audiences. More resources will be added as and when they become available. If you can’t find what you need, you might also like to have a look at the South West Federation’s website.
