Track: 

  • Visitor Experience, Community Engagement

Museums, for the most part, have become fully integrated with social media. At their most basic however, these online communities represent a single direction of information as museums push information and users like, retweet, and occasionally comment. What happens when museums want to create a true online dialogue among all or a specific group of constituents? This poster will discuss the proposers’ experiences consulting for and creating an online community for the Joan Mitchell Foundation’s artist-teacher employees using the Ning platform.
