Project Description

Communications

Overview

The Communications project aims to bring together the physical and digital resources needed for the delivery of Callander’s Landscape, as well as looking forward to the digital assets needed for the legacy phase of the project. The digital strands of this project include a digital archive, any digital interpretative elements (for example using ESRI ArcGIS StoryMaps), and a community-based website. Bringing together these three strands ensures these different but linked elements work together cohesively.  It also incorporates a range of printed materials and a temporary project website which utilises photographs taken by volunteers during the development phase of Callander’s Landscape.

Aims & Objectives

This project aims to:

  • Create a standalone website for Callander’s Landscape with an operational lifespan that corresponds with the three-year delivery phase and through into the legacy phase;
  • Create a digital archive with Callander Heritage Society, taking professional advice from a Content Management Systems specialist;
  • Create interpretative resources with input from the community to inform the content, narrative and the most appropriate ways of sharing this information;
  • Share project information using printed media, including leaflets and pop-up displays for use at event and activities;
  • Provide appropriate training and support before digital resources are transferred to community management and ownership.

Project updates

  • WordPress website created for Callander’s Landscape by an external consultant which is now managed and updated by the core staff team.
  • Two pop-up display boards and gatefold cards created for use at events.
  • External contractor appointed to review the proposed digital outputs and provide a project plan that maps out the steps needed to implement our digital commitments into the legacy phase.
