MyFestivals Autumn 2011

#mosi-along Autumn 2011

Background; A recent discussion with JISC has allowed us to run #mosialong until the end of 2011. We will use this time so that we can test our social media participation model,  Aggregate then Curate, and develop the Ambient Learning Manchester project. We met last week to discuss how we would develop links with other projects and events in Manchester and Salford, and develop and train Digital Learning Champions. We decided to focus our story-telling around the upcoming Festivals this Autumn.

MyFestivals; This follows the myMOSI and Digital Cabinet of Curiosities approach we developed for the first phase of #mosialong and will allow people to tell stories about themselves in the context of the festivals.  We will be running monthly competitions for the best MyFestival story, with a Zoom camera as the prize.

Digital Learning Champions; We will work with our main partners LSEN and Peoples Voice Media to both organise training and provide trainers for this programme. Contact us if you want to be trained as a Digital Learning Champion. LSEN are based at the WEA offices. 

October; We will work with City Camp Manchester to link to other emerging city-based Web2.0 initiatives. We will work with Madlabs to link into alternative communities, and provide drop-in sessions. We will work with WEA to promote the Peripheral Visions project and co-ordinate social media training and surgeries. We will work with ArcSpace to develop community archivists. We will work with “I Love MCR” to develop stories around communities.

November; We will work with Digital Corridor to develop broader ideas of the city of the future, smart, ambient, intelligent, community-focussed. Can streetlife drive inovation and regeneration. Can we treat Manchester and Salford as Greater Manchester.

December; We will work with the Christmas market at the Manchester Craft Centre to capture peoples stories about crafts and Christmas past.
