Connecting with Museum Audiences: Exploring Third-Space through Social Media at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

A session at MCN 2012

  • Jodi DeBruyne

  • Anthony Gray

Thursday 8th November, 2012

1:30pm to 1:50pm (PST)

Social media and mobile technologies have the potential to reach new audiences, promote dialogue and support collaborative learning in cultural institutions. They have the ability to blur the divide between onsite and online audiences through the creation of a hybrid “third-space” to which everyone has access. Using social media as a bridge between museum visitors and remote visitors can be a valuable tool in this new age.

In January 2012, four Johns Hopkins University Museum Studies graduate students tested the potential of this idea through the creation and implementation of a live hybrid onsite and virtual architectural tour ending with an online group discussion at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. The following is an examination of their project and the potential of an experimental strategy that brings visitors and institutions together in order to create connections.
