10,000 Invitations: A roundtable on arts institutions and new/social media

Gerding Theater at the Armory
128 NW 11th Ave
Portland, OR 97209, US (map)



Hosted by Lisa Radon who blogs for Portland Monthly as the Culturephile.

Good minds from Portland arts institutions share the ways they’re using new and social media to engage audiences.

The Portland Art Museum creates conversational videos about works in the collection, creates a community website for its China Design Now exhibition, and tweets as M.C. Escher. Portland Center Stage creates show preview videos that go viral and uses Twitter in innovative ways. The Museum of Contemporary Craft creates video and podcast and invites audience response. PICA integrates Twitter, Flickr, and YouTube into its TBA Festival blog.

In education, programming, and marketing, we’ll talk about what’s worked and what’s on the horizon as the landscape continues to change with new tools and new challenges all the time.

Participants include:

Christina Olsen, PhD Director of Education & Public Programs, Portland Art Museum

Beth Heinrich Director of Marketing & Public Relations, Portland Art Museum

Cynthia Fuhrman Marketing and Communications Director, Portland Center Stage

Patrick Leonard Public Relations, Portland Institute for Contemporary Art

Rebecca Burrell, Public Relations and Marketing Specialist, Museum of Contemporary Craft
