What People Say… About Tate Modern

(See the video in the post above. Only in Spanish)

With this video Sociable Museums not only make its debut as a vlog, but also inaugurates the section “What People Say…” In this ongoing section I will publish videos available in the Social Software showing comments by people in Art Museums.

From killer feet to disoriented tourists, in this video you will see how Tate Modern‘s cutting-edge art can live together without problems with “salchichón” sandwiches.

Photosharing of Art Museums in Africa

Sociable Museums is fully committed to take the best profit of the Web2.0 tools to share experiences about Art Museums from all over the World. As the information about Art Museums available online seems to be uneven, I have started a project to gather, locate and share photos of Art Museums in Africa.

So, I encourage you to add your photos to the e-artcasting’s pool at Flickr conveniently tagged with,

  • Name of the museum,
  • City or specific location,
  • Country,
  • Continent: Africa

Thank you for your collaboration.

Welcome to Sociable Museums!

Sociable Museumsis a non-profit research project, an information resource and a professional network to share experiences, exchange information and develop resources about Sociable Technologies in Art Museums from all over the world.These new ways of communication are valuable tools for Art Museums interacting with their audiences. From this point of view, Sociable Museums explores and documents their use, impact and possibilities.In addition to this Blog, Sociable Museums project is composed of a Wikispace, a Listible Space, a Photo Project and a list of Reference Websites.

  • Sociable Museums Wiki is a work in progress Wiki Site to check and add the improvements that Art Museums are addressing in terms of Sociable Technologies, such us blogs, wiki spaces, podcasting, vodcasting, etc. I encourage you to check the list of museums, add and update the information.
  • Sociable Museums List is a work in progress complementary to Sociable Museums Wiki. It is a Listible space where creating a list of Art Museums working with Sociable Technologies.
  • Sociable Museums Photo Project is a work in progress Flickr Site to exhibit visitors’ photographic experiences and personal visions in and about Art Museums.

As you can see, apart from reading and posting on this Blog, you can also enjoy a wide range of complementary resources.

Language is an important issue of this project. This Blog uses English and Spanish, so you can use any of both languages to make your contributions. However, I would really appreciate you to add also a translation to your original text and/or to collaborate with us translating other’s posts, attaching your translations as comments to the originals.

Note that I am currently working on the development of this site, so maybe you will notice some upgrades that should be done. Please, do not hesitate to make suggestions about them: I will be happy to receive your feedback. I encourage you to join this community, use its resources and enrich this site with your participation.

Finally, a reminder: do not forget to add and update in the Wiki the information about your Art Museum or your favorite castings in them. I am looking forward your contributions!
