Hello Western Region museum professionals! The National Endowment for the Humanities will be integrating social media into its NEH on the Road traveling exhibition program. In an effort to form viable integration strategies and select the right tools, I would like to know more about your experience with and attitudes toward social media.
First, a bit more about the NEH on the Road program. Administered by the Mid-America Arts Alliance, it offers an opportunity for communities of all sizes to experience some of the best exhibitions funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Each of the exhibitions has been developed for small to mid-sized museums, based on a larger exhibition funded by NEH. NEH on the Road exhibitions feature a compelling mix of objects, graphics, text, and interactives, plus a wide array of educational resources.
Since it's a nationwide program, your museum could host a NEH on the Road exhibit at some point in the future. As museum professionals who could be working with the program, how would you use social media to communicate with NEH representatives? With other professionals who had mounted the exhibition in their museum? With museums who will rent the exhibition in the future?
This project is still forming and this is your chance to help shape it into something useful.
I invite you to contribute to this project by completing a quick, 10-question multiple-choice survey by following this link:
