The job

Build the content and communication offer for LUMA, and manage all digital projects.  
LUMA encompasses art and photo exhibitions, dance performances, music festivals, a design & research lab, conferences, an art book fair, education programme, an experimental library, local initiatives, artists residencies, a living archive project, etc.

  • Content strategy & content production 

  • Storytelling 

  • Online & offline communication

  • Social Media & marketing

  • Digital projects management

  • Team recruitment, management & training

To build trust, create awareness and grow our online community, presenting the wide scope of projects, events, activities and shows to everyone was crucial.

I hired both internally and externally to create a content production unit (photoshoots, video production, livestream, copywriting) which allowed us to produce quality content at a fast pace.
I built the communication team and trained my collaborators to produce social media content with specific guidelines and tone of voice.

This allowed to develop a content strategy around the idea of a diary:

  • covering the behind the scenes as well as public events,

  • using new digital channels to reach a wider audience, 

  • giving a voice to all stakeholders (e.g. crane operator),

  • creating a more in-depth content offer for subscribed users, with access to talks, conferences, etc. (see opposite)

Closely monitoring insights and analytics allowed me to refine the content strategy over the months and adapt, not only the kind of content to be produced but also each campaign to specific audiences (e.g. locals, youth, international...). 
Hiring a Community Manager was also key to grow our online community and engage with our audiences on social.

I was also invited to join LUMA's Editorial Committee.
