Audiences Europe Network (current primary client)
I've worked closely with Audiences Europe's coordinating director Rich Hadley to build, develop and manage a niche social network for executive audience practitioners working within arts and culture institution across Europe. This has included the adoption and development of social technologies, livestreaming events, engaging and managing remote audience practitioners and the digital documentation of the partner organisations' EU funded projects Open All Areas and Extending The Margins.

Aug - Oct 2014 : Arts & Audiences 2014 - The Digital Audience Experience
Arts and Audiences commissioned me to produce a digital parallel conference 'in the cloud' - The Digital Audience Experience (DAEx) enabled Arts and Audiences delegates to attend from around the EU and beyond. The DAEx live team (myself, a studio anchor, livestream team and 6 young nordic bloggers) became the audiences eyes and ears 'on the ground'. The live stream audience could watch the main hall live stream with a web TV studio taking over in the breaks, chat on the Live Wall, attend the Round Table discussion on Day 2 and take part in the dedicated Google HangOuts with guest speakers and Q&A exclusively for the DAEx attendees. I produced and delivered working in a floor management role this digital audience experiment asking, Is it possible to create a credible event experience 'in the cloud'. Can it be as good 'in the cloud' as it is 'on the ground'?
I produced the studio integrated schedule in direct collaboration with the event's production team managing the media capture, social media output, consequent media archive and event engagement report. The DAEx event can be viewed On Demand.
The DAEx in Iceland achieved a total twitter reach over 7 days of 2,280,673 impressions with a unique reach of 274,341 over the same period.

2011 - 2012 : Extending The Margins - Audiences Europe - EU funded
The programme aimed to facilitate sharing of knowledge and experience of cultural managers and exchange best practice. The knowledge acquired through this process enabled managers to engage more effectively with their target client groups, making arts and culture more accessible to the widest spectrum of the population.
