We want WOW Festival to be truly an international festival – UK wide and worldwide. For this reason we will be live streaming events from the festival.
Here in the New Media Team we’ve been working on WOW since back in November. The digital part of WOW basically involves organising everything online, from Facebook and twitter, to tweet meets and teams of bloggers.
We started out with aim of creating an online community for WOW and (I hope!) we have managed to achieve this. The main thing for us was to have a great Facebook page specifically for WOW so as to create an extension of the festival online. A place for debate, discussion and information. We’ve hit 1000 followers on International Women’s Day, which seems rather well timed.
So here’s a list of all things digital that we’ll be doing throughout the festival weekend:
Twitter – we’ll be tweeting from out @southbankcentre account using #WOW2012
Andriod and iphone app – we have created a conference app so that you have easy access to programme information, facebook, blogs and twitter.
Audio Recordings – we’ll be recording some of the talks and putting them on this blog. More details to come.
