My name is Beth, I am from the UK, and I previously studied History of Art with Gallery and Museum Studies at the University of East Anglia.
I started the Museums, Galleries and Contemporary Culture MA in the hope that it would lead me towards a career in arts and heritage. I know I want to work within this sector, but I don’t know which direction to go…
With the Online Museums and Galleries module, I am looking to learn more about the imminent digital revolution and the impact this will have on both large and small institutions. I have not had much experience in the online realm, other than dabbling with different social media sites and using the internet as an information resource. Generally I’m more of an observer than a participator. For one of my undergraduate assessments, however, I curated an online exhibition for Rhizome ArtBase, and I have recently joined the National Army Museum’s Waterloo Lives: In Their Own Words crowd-sourcing project.
