Connecting museums and audiences through digital projects.

What is DEN?

DEN projects are about generating new audiences through social-networking online. Resources are shared and online engagement is promoted with audiences and collections through Google Maps, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr and Facebook. There are links to museum websites from the DEN project pages.

DEN projects digitally capture the results of engagement between museums and local communities.

DEN projects enable our audiences to interact with collections and re-interpret them for the 21st Century. Search the Culture Grid for objects from museums and libraries in the East Midlands, on the EMMS Homepage:  (Search box is on the right hand side of the page.)

DEN projects have created case studies covering e.g. filmmaking, oral history, poetry, digital archives, research, reminiscence, images, story sacks, audio trails, objects taking on a social media life, digital art and music. Some projects have now closed and some are still running.
