newCardigan is a social and professional group for people who work in galleries, libraries, archives and museums - and for those who like hanging around with GLAM types.
newCardigan helps GLAM professionals to be more awesome.
We critique ourselves, and GLAM practice.
newCardigan is JFDI.
Cardigans. Cocktails. Shoptalk.
We hold a Cardi Party every month, where we listen to an interesting GLAM speaker and then have a few drinks afterwards. If you can't make to the Cardi Parties, we usually record them for CardiCast - a podcast featuring Cardi Party speakers and interviews with interesting GLAM types. On the first day of each month we announce a new topic for GLAM Blog Club. You can find older Blog Club information on CardiChat. GLAM Blog Club is open to anyone around the world, but if you're Australian you can register your blog on our Aus GLAM Blogs web app. Follow the Twitter bot to stay up to date with GLAM blog posts, or connect it to your Pocket account. We also have a discussion forum called CardiChat - it's simple to register and connected to all our website posts for commenting.
