VALUE ADDED: Making and presenting content for the web
Just how effective are we in harnessing the web’s potential as an information-giving and audience development tool?
This workshop is all about how we can create and present web content that users will actually want to read and view.
The event has been designed for staff working in visual arts organisations, galleries and artist-led spaces – it’s for anybody who is interested in developing web content that can better support their business aims and artistic programme.
This event took place at MIMA on 11 July 2012. Do get in touch if you're interested in hosting a similar event
