In 2013, as part of my work managing digital initiatives at the Chemical Heritage Foundation in Philadelphia, I created a livestreamed program titled #HistChem to establish a deeper dialog with CHF’s audiences around topics of history, science and culture.
Among the program’s objectives:
- Make the institution accessible by featuring its people, collections and research initiatives
- Unify traditional & social media platforms
- Spark compelling conversations about History & SciTech
- Track effectiveness through metrics & social curation tools
A channel of the program’s episodes can be accessed here: https://vimeo.com/channels/789012
You can access the interim evaluation report with tips for other cultural institutions wishing to adopt livestreaming as well. View it below or by accessing this link: scribd.com/doc/232511146/Program-Report-Livestreaming-Engagement-Model-for-Cultural-Heritage
