*This blog*

I started Making Conversation with Museums a in 2006 to talk about how social media enabled new ways for the general public to start conversations with museums. After a considerable hiatus I have returned with a focus on how our conversations have become mobile.


My name is Francesca Ford I have worked in online production for over a decade and for the past 5 years have worked in the cultural sector because that’s where best and most valuable content is.

    Hi Francesca,
    I’m really interested in hearing more about your MA thesis, and if you have any good references you can give me on the topic. I am curretnly writing an academic article on art museums and galleries who are wising up to the digital age and using social networking tools to increase their profile, and get their audiences to interact with them in a new way.
    Am sure there are a number of purists who are not so impressed with the way things are going… anyway, any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi Evie,

    Sorry to take so long to respond, I’ve started a new job and moved house but I think the chaos is subsiding and kind of under control. A good starting place may be the museum 3.0 community http://museum30.ning.com/, here you’ll find a community of people who are working in museums and may have some useful information for you. I used to work at the Brooklyn Museum http://www.brooklynmuseum.org and think their community section would be a great resource as well.

    Let me know if I can help you out in any other way.
