Upcoming talks update – Stockholm, Amsterdam, London, Wellington

October 6th, 2009 by Seb Chan

I’m hitting the road again in a few weeks – this time spending a bit of time in Europe working with a range of institutions – before the National Digital Forum in New Zealand at the end of November.

First up is a presentation for ABM-Centrum in Stockholm, Sweden on Friday October 23. This event is a half day presentation with myself and Johan Ronnestam talking about social media and cultural institutions, and how Swedish institutions might experiment and engage.

The following week I am in Amsterdam working with the newly in development Nationaal Historisch Museum. This includes a one day event called New Museum Lab which brings together a good sized group of museum policy makers, academics and outsiders including myself and Jake Barton from Local Projects, StoryCorps and 911makehistory.org. (There’s a good piece on Jake over at City of Sound from the 2007 Postopolis).

Then it is off to run two workshops in London organised by Culture24. The first is a reprise of a sold out workshop I did last year roughly around the notion of ‘Strategic social media’, updated, remixed and with some fresh ideas thrown in. It takes place on Tuesday November 3 at CILIP in Central London. Then on Wednesday November 4 I’m leading a half day workshop on ‘Web metrics and measuring success’ which is very similar to the ones I ran in California last month. This one is being held at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich. Both these workshops for Culture24 are focussed on “warts and all” practicalities and require no technical experience.

Following all this I’ll be in Wellington for the National Digital Forum on November 23-24 where I am chairing a session of geodata and the cultural sector, and taking part in the next Culturemondo Roundtable. While I am there I’m also running the Web metrics workshop for the NZ sector at the National Library of NZ on November 26.

If you happen to be a regular reader in Stockholm, Amsterdam or London and would like to catch up whilst I am in the neighbourhood, then drop me an email.
