Open Sessions Are You Coping with Digital? (Bristol & York)

Please not this session will take place across both locations but unfortunately will not be linked.

This open session has been proposed by Jane Finnis. 

If digital cultural assets were food, we would all be eating a very restricted diet full of ingredients that were difficult to know how to cook, were often not ripe and were hard to digest.  If only we could be the spice, the substance, the flavour necessary for anything delicious. The fundamental ingredient that could be reused in different recipes, with a host of different results, in a million kitchens.

Why is our digital stuff so often lost in the vast ocean that is the google search results?  It is out there somewhere, tumbling in the raging SEO surf, only visible every now and then as the shifting tides of user behaviour wash on the shores of our ever increasing time online. 

How can we hope to COPE as cultural institutions with this digital landscape that is so changeable and where the taste of our own creativity is drowned by the dominant flavours of the big brands?  To COPE better (Create Once and Publish Everywhere), what would that actually be like?
