Today’s featured noticeboard comes from the heart of the UK, Birmingham. Brum Culture is run by Guy Evans who is the Social Media Officer for Birmingham City Council.
I asked Guy to tell us a little bit more about Brum Culture…
Brum Culture was set-up to form part of the city’s bid to win the national title ‘City of Culture 2013’. We didn’t win (that went to Derry/Londonderry) – but we found using channels like facebook, twitter and flickr opened up a whole new way of reaching people. So we continued using these channels to promote culture in the city.
Who set up Brum Culture and why?
Brum Culture is based in Birmingham. Can you tell us the three best things about the city?
The three best things about Brum (and this would be a personal view) Diversity. Culture. Heritage
What do you hope to achieve with your noticeboard?
As a social media officer I’m interested in how we use new channels to reach different audiences, for example I recently set-up a Pinterest account for Birmingham Culture. I like the idea of having lots of channels and interacting with different people using different mediums. I suppose long term I would like to see a Birmingham ‘community’ on noticeboard.
Thank you Guy! You can see Brum Culture’s Noticeboard here. If you spot a Noticeboard that you think should be featured, get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
