The European Museum of the Year Award (EMYA) event will take place in Glasgow, Scotland, from Wednesday 13 to Saturday 16 May 2015. More than 200 participants come together every year from across all of Europe. They meet to discuss points of view, themes and issues that affect museums. This year, forty two candidates from 21 countries are in the competition for the prestigious annual awards and the title of European Museum of the Year.
On the Pre-Conference Day (13/5/2015) at Glasgow's eCult Dialogue Day, a workshop titled Museums: Responding to the digital world will take place. A range of speakers will focus on how museums can foster a culture of digital integration across departments within their wider organizations and explore what ‘digital' means for museums. Presentations will discuss: creating and implementing a digital strategy that works, effectively managing the challenges and opportunities of social media, roles and staffing and how to build support and develop skills using technology in museums.
