Museum Staff Blogs

Looking at the website for the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) I clicked on the ‘Blog’ tab and found a list of blogs by different staff members at the ICA. These include blogs by the artistic director, press officer, bookshop manager and (note job title!) web manager. Through commenting on these blogs and creating dialogue with the staff, I think this becomes an interesting way for people to engage with the Institute, and feel their opinions are valued. It also poses some interesting questions for the future job descriptions of museum and gallery posts – will the writing of a blog become the norm for museum professionals?
