We were taking on by Hackney Museum in November 2021 to help them form a Digital Engagament Strategy for the coming 3 year period. The museum was still reeling from a council-wide cyber attack in October 2020, and we helped them to begin to think about how to recover from the impact of this, focusing on small, practical and audience-focused steps.

We wanted to deliver the end result as a “living document” rather than a long-winded Word document, and the end result was a wiki site which the team could interact with and continue to grow over the period of the work.

Digital Engagement Strategy for Hackney Museum

We had lots of ideas about what we wanted to do, but not about the specific steps required to make anything a reality – we use digital in our daily lives and learn most things on the job in the best way we can. Working with Mike at Thirty8Digital helped us crystallise what we wanted to achieve, why and how we would do it. As a small team with limited resources, we needed a consultant who could work with us, as well as make us work, to help us reach our goals. It has been quite a journey but we’re proud of what we have learnt and managed to achieve, thanks to the support from Mike.

    Thirty8 Digital created our Exploring Eliot website, a project which involved three partners and multiple strands of information that needed to be organised and presented clearly as well as attractively.
