(VIDEO) Take Time to Consider the Big Picture: Why do you do what you do?

Running a nonprofit museum or gallery and running a for-profit small business has at least one similarity: endless day to day work and challenges that make it easy to lose sight of the big picture: the reason why we chose to do what we do.

So last week, we dedicated a meaningful chunk of time going back to the origins of CultureSpots. We talked about why we decided to create our platform and why we feel so strongly that it matters even more than ever right now.  The answer lies in our core appreciation for what you do, and the importance of your work. Especially in times like this, when turmoil, conflict and misinformation abound, our cultural institutions, museums and galleries serve as reliable beacons of the enlightenment, empathy and understanding that are essential components of a functioning civil society.

If we can play a role in helping you do that, then it makes it all worth it.

In this short video, we get into that feeling place.  Care to join us?

Thank you for doing what you do.

 

Enjoy your journey,

Cliff Stevens

If you were to plan a massive Grand Re-Opening party at your museum or gallery, who would you invite?  Would you invite just those folks who’ve already been visiting for years, or would you try reaching out to new people who’ve never stepped foot inside before?  Would you want to do something special for them, […]

(VIDEO) The Challenge: Just how long DOES it take to create great audio content?

Hi everyone!

If you’ve ever wondered how much time it takes to create great audio content on CultureSpots, or what kind of technical expertise is involved, you’ll want to check out this video.  Perhaps you’ve been asking yourself:

  • Do we need to invest a lot of time into recording our audio?
  • Do we need a budget to buy fancy recording and editing equipment?
  • Do we need training to figure out some new audio editing software?

Before we simply say “NO, NO and NO!”, we’re actually going to challenge ourselves to see whether or not this is truly the case!

In this video, I’ll record, edit and upload audio into CultureSpots, using our (FREE!) web-based audio recorder and editor using my laptop’s browser and built-in microphone.  All the while, a timer will be keeping track of how much time it takes.  Dare to fancy a guess?  Watch the video and find out for yourself.

 

Let the challenge begin!

What do you think?

I’d like to clarify that this video is not a tutorial (even though it might be all you need). For a detailed tutorial, have a look at these 3 brief but detailed tutorials for each step:

RECORD AUDIO TUTORIAL
EDIT AUDIO TUTORIAL
UPLOAD AUDIO TUTORIAL

 

If you need any help, guidance or personalized training on any of these steps, or anything else, we’re here to help!  Reach out anytime.
