Let’s Get Real: Crit Room, Failing Forward and Talk Tables

We’ve been having a great time pulling together some really unique stuff for the conference and have three different session types to offer you alongside the usual inspiring keynotes:

1. The Crit Room

A special troubleshooting Crit Room, where attendees can receive personalised problem-solving guidance in a friendly and supportive environment. Once you’ve bought your ticket fill in our form telling us about the site describing the main problem or challenge you’re currently experiencing. Our panel of experts will review the sites in advance, then offer constructive advice, mixed with practical suggestions and comments/ideas from the floor. The expert panel are Adam Gee, Cross-platform Commissioner for Factual at Channel 4 (Chair), Fiz Yazdi, User Experience Director at cxpartners (www.cxpartners.co.uk), Anra Kennedy, Head of Content and Partnerships at Culture24

2. Failing Forward Case Studies
Partners in our Action Research Project will present honest case studies about online projects they attempted, what didn’t work, and what they learned as a result. We have some wonderful title ….
‘If you build it they won’t come’ Hugh Wallace, Head of Digital Media, National Museums Scotland
‘I Will Never Tweet Again’ Josephine Chanter, Head of Communications, The Design Museum
‘Keeping an eye on my vital statistics’ James Morley, Website Development Manager, Kew
‘Knowing Me, Knowing You’ Matthew Cock, Head of Web, British Museum
‘Have you heard of us?’ Emma McLean, Digital Marketing Officer, National Maritime Museum
‘Trying to make the parts add up’ Louise Gardner, Head of Communications, Watershed

3. Talk Tables
Literally a series of tables where different companies/people discuss what they do and how they can offer help to delegates in areas around the conference theme.
They are informal and responsive, and geared to providing a space to find out about technical systems and digital tools, and meet experts who offer solutions to the problems and needs of arts and heritage organisations. You can talk to/about: Google Analytics; TripAdvisor; Building Digital Capacity for the Arts (Arts Council England); Hitwise (Experian); JISC; Cogapp; cxpartners; Loic Tallon (Pocket Proof); Social Media pick ‘n’ mix (Rachel Clements and Elena Villaespesa); Gaming (Danny Birchall and Martha Henson)

Tuesday 20th and Wednsday 21st September 2011, Watershed, Bristol
