The aim of this week has been to rally UK museums to take part in the survey I am running to establish what social networking sites mean for audience development within the sector. Along the way I have been making lots of new acquaintances as well as tapping up some ‘old’ friends for a helping hand. Hence thought they deserved a mention:

Discussion Groups

  • Charity Web Forum – great people, doing fantastic work for very worthwhile organisations, helpful bunch too.

LinkedIn Groups

  • MuseumLink – a hub for museum professionals online and linked in.
  • Arts & Business – where creatives and business collide.


  • Audiences UK – The national network for Audience Development Agencies in the UK. Championing audience development at the highest level.
