Re-connecting with your audiences

May 12, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Take some time to review your audience engagement. Who have you been connecting with during lockdown? Who has slipped through the net? Which new audiences would you like to engage? This workshop will help you think through how you are engaging your audiences, volunteers and community and identify new ways to build relationships with them both in the shorter term and longer term. It will include research and tools to help you consider and plan how your audience strategy needs to evolve going forward.

What will participants gain?

  • An opportunity to reflect on how the pandemic has impacted their audiences and their approach to engaging audiences
  • A framework to use when reviewing changes and planning for the future
  • Ideas and inspiration for how to communicate with and engage their audiences to build relationships

Who should attend?

This training is aimed at individuals who have some experience on marketing and audience development at their museum and will be aimed beyond an introductory level. It is for staff and volunteers of East Midlands museums.

Please be prepared to attend the session with:

  • Your organisation’s mission / vision / purpose and any core organisational or business objectives that audience development needs to support
  • An understanding of who their museum’s audiences and target audiences are (you won’t be asked to share this).
