Transcript

  • 1. DaDa Does Digital! 2 nd April 09
  • 2. Pre Amb:ITion
    • We were known as North West Disability Arts Forum
    • We were based in a non creative office space
    • We had old PC equipment – with different software – and different understanding of what we could do in terms of new technologies
  • 3. What we did achieve…….
    • Had a website designed in 2001 – created to be as accessible as possible - but was more a electronic brochure and not very attractive
    • Established DaDaFest – a disability & deaf arts an annual festival with awards dinner and on-line voting
    • All staff learnt on the job – reactive rather than proactive
  • 4.  
  • 5. Now……
    • We have re-branded to : DaDa - Disability & Deaf Arts
    • Moved into the Bluecoat Arts
    • Centre, Liverpool City Centre
    • All staff the same PC capabilities, new equipment and understanding on how digital content is the future
  • 6. www.dadahello.com
    • The biggest development is a brand new website.......designed with input from staff, board & volunteers – it is more than just a window on our work
    • We are using it to grow audiences, plan to develop two on-line projects in 2009/10
    • It has a variety of access options and currently staff are being trained to add own content and build relationships through it
  • 7.  
  • 8. Social Networking
    • We have set up a Face book – with over 1,000 sign ups in its first 6 weeks
    • My Space
    • Twitter and working on developing new networks that can be more accessible
  • 9. Young People’s Ownership
    • Established a 12 week programme to train up 12 young Disabled people on a digital arts project with FACT which will form pages on our website as ‘ Young DaDa’ which will be managed by the young people themselves
  • 10. Future……
    • We aim to link in more and more internationally as reflected in the engagement in the website & facebook relationships
    • We have plans to expand our digital capabilities as a staff team – and have designed 4 half days of digital playtimes into our working environment in the next 8 weeks
    • I need more training on how to do sexier powerpoints!
