Reaching Digitally Excluded Audiences

July 21, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Millions of people in the UK are digitally excluded for a range of reasons, at a time when there is more focus on digital and digital delivery of services than ever before.

In this session we will take a closer look at what we mean by digitally excluded audiences, why and how people are digitally excluded, and who they are. You will explore who forms part of your audience that isn’t online and what you can do to reach and connect with them in a way that works for both them and you.

What will participants gain?

  • An understanding of why and how people are digitally excluded, and the implications for them and museums
  • Support with identifying who your digitally excluded audiences are and understanding their needs
  • Ideas and examples of the ways in which you can engage with digitally excluded audiences.

Who should attend?

This training is aimed at individuals who have some experience of online marketing and would like to progress to a more advanced level. It is for staff and volunteers of East Midlands museums. In particular delegates should have some knowledge of the below to get the most from the session:

  • An understanding of who their museum’s audiences and target audiences are
  • And reflections on which of their audiences are digitally excluded (they won’t be asked to share this).

If participants have done any engagement with or marketing for digitally excluded audiences, they will be welcome to share this with others in the chat box during the session.
