This kind of collaboration is encouraging.

We finally got to attend a Social Media Breakfast here in town. The group had its latest meeting at Syracuse Stage on Thursday, and the focus was how arts organizations engage online.  Participants included representatives from The Red House, The Everson Museum, CNY Arts and Art Rage.

The discussion ranged from generating unique content and boosting awareness to using “gamification” (rewards) and data collection methods to gain new followers/supporters.

What was most impressive is that you didn’t have to be a savvy social media manager or represent an art venue to pick up pearls of wisdom from this conversation.   Quick, power-packed, yet very filling, it was like breakfast for your head.
