Digital

Digital Engagement support with websites, social media, strategy and policies, digital accessibility, digital audience insights, collections online and copyright.

Our Digital Engagement Officer, Polly Allen, can provide practical digital guidance for your museum.

Polly can support you with:

  • Reaching your audience online: how to effectively create and manage your website, social media and newsletter communications using best practice, and how to use third party platforms.
  • The best digital tools and resources for museums on a tight budget, or with limited staff and volunteers.
  • Digital accessibility for websites, social media, resources and wider considerations: making your  content usable and appropriate for everyone.
  • Writing or updating a digital audience engagement strategy, including content planning, digital marketing, and equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI).
  • Rights and copyright issues: developing and updating digital policies and procedures related to rights management; copyright advice.
  • Connecting to regional and national networks for extra advice from your peers.

Polly provides tailored digital engagement training through our SW Museum Skills sessions and also leads the South West Museums Copyright Forum.
