Sharing photographic collections: building communities w/Nick Stanhope & Ryan Donahue
This free talk, organised by the Digital, Social & Emerging technologies team at the Powerhouse Museum, features two international guests speakers presenting on the sharing and interpretation of photographic collections. The speakers are Nick Stanhope form HistoryPin and Ryan Donahue from George Eastman House.
Nick Stanhope is CEO of We Are What We Do, the non-profit organisation behind Historypin, the digital archiving tool created with Google as a way for people to come together, from across different generations and cultures, around the history of our streets. Before joining We Are What We Do in 2007, Nick worked as a teacher, youth worker and campaigner, exploring new ways of bring social issues to life for larger, more diverse audiences. His work at We Are What We Do has tried to take this a step further, drawing on behavioural economics and social psychology to create projects that "incidentally" affect people's behaviour in positive ways. Over the last five years, Nick's team have launched a string of creative behaviour change products and tools, including the I'm Not a Plastic Bag shopper, Teach Your Granny to Text children's book and the digital tools, Internet Buttons and Historypin. Nick will be presenting HistoryPin and the Australian memory experience he is developing with the Powerhouse Museum.
Ryan Donahue is the Manager of Information Systems at George Eastman House. In this role, he oversees digital collections, a Collections Management System, a Digital Asset Management System and a handful of websites. Likes linked open data, mobile, social medias, maths and Spinny Bars. Ryan will be presenting on 'Preservation in the Digital World'.
