Tune in to CultureFM http://twitter.com/culturefm this Friday, an arts and heritage flavoured twitter stream that in another life would have been a radio station!
TweetJockeys (TJs) for the second pilot show include archive, gallery, library and museum staff tweeting about their day-to-day work, the lives of collections, behind-the-scenes secrets and much more.
Check out the CultureFM blogfor more information on theprogrammes and some background of our TJs and their shows:http://culturefm.wordpress.
CultureFM producers are Kostas Arvanitis (Centre for Museology and Institute for Cultural Practices, University of Manchester), Steve Devine (Manchester Museum and Whitworth Art Gallery), Dave Govier (Manchester Archives+), Martin Grimes (Manchester Art Gallery) and Sue Lawson (Manchester Libraries). Chiara Zuanni (PhD student at the Centre for Museology) and Katharine Sutton (Intern at Manchester Archives+) volunteer the much needed admin and research support.
Currently, the project are looking for ideas for future CultureFM shows and TJs, so do get in touch if you’d like to propose a show or suggest an institution or an individual (including yourself!) for a TJ. Tweet or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
So, tune in to CultureFM on Friday 13 July 2012 to experience the second show of this twitter station!
