Museum of London

DigitalBinx advised the Museum of London and the University of Westminster on #citizencurators, a social media research project documenting Londoners’ experiences during the 2012 Olympics.

Delivery

DigitalBinx devised a social media strategy to drive the project forward smoothly, recruit a keen and diverse group of volunteer #citizencurators and maintain engagement via Twitter over the Olympic fortnight. DigitalBinx lead an online PR campaign outreaching to London influencers to attract interest and volunteers, while promoting public dialogue. To support Museum of London project coordinators, DigitalBinx provided community management and Storify training to enable curation of crowdsourced content.
