Connecting Your Community Through the Art of Crowdsourcing

Crowdsourcing calls on people who are otherwise not connected to contribute in a small way toward a common goal. We see this on the web all the time, from Kickstarter to Threadless T-shirt design competitions. Like a donation, asking an online community member to contribute in some form to a larger project better connects them to your project outcomes and your organization’s mission. Apply a cultural or artist lens to crowdsourcing and you have the potential to build something beautiful, meaningful, using many hands and a collective hive mind.

Online Community Manager Theodora Lamb and Creative Digital Strategist Samantha Langdorf will demonstrate how important it is to engage your online communities through crowdsourcing and how drawing out the artistic talents of your community members can help build momentum around your organizations’ mission or cause work.
