Amplified is here at the Re:freshers event 7-9 July. This is a 3 day event at the Wellcome Collection in London. Re:freshers is a festival of ideas, networks and insights on leadership delivered by the Cultural Leadership Programme at the Arts Council.
On Wednesday night we had a DJ, singer songwriter, live art, poetry stand up (by ), bossanova band…. 21 x 90 second presentations (phew! All covered by Amplified – you’ll find them to the right in the AudioBoo box), networking, and an Amplified base from which we are encouraging people to use the CLP network and join in online.
Thursday and Friday we are amplifying the full event – grabbing the willing folk for interviews, taking pics and tweeting like mad (#ref2010 or follow ). Collecting interesting conversations and helping people join in online – on the CLP network, Twitter – we’re here to help. We are here to assist delegates with logging on to the new CLP networking site, to answer questions about social media (big or small!) and to persuade you that it is something that will be of huge benefit to your working life. Through documenting the event online by using social media tools – for example, live blogging, tweeting, photos, and interviews, that are easy for people to access and that can be done in real time and near time, you are able to see the bits you missed while here, or if you cannot attend the whole event, then you can follow from the comfort of your home, office or phone. After the event, you will be able to see the highlights from the event and revisit missed content. You will also be able to stay in touch with people you did – or perhaps didn’t – meet at the event.
We hope you enjoy the event – whether you’re here or elsewhere!
