Digital Matters

The SW Digital Development Project was a region-wide initiative aimed at developing and extending the digital reach of museums. It is run by the Museum Development Officers from Gloucestershire, Somerset, Wiltshire, Devon, Dorset and Cornwall.

The  SWDDP received Arts Council Strategic funding in October 2012 to develop the online presence of museums in  the region.  Each of the six ‘sub-projects’ focuses closely on the needs of the individual counties and features a variety of innovations and developments to their websites, for example to increase content, enhance usability, offer more services and showcase the treasures and inspiration available in our region’s museums.
