Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Digital Snapshot, bringing you all the latest digital news, ideas, tips and guidance for the arts, culture, museums and heritage world.

First up, bookings are now open for Culture 24's two free online seminars for heritage leaders and trustees, Digital leadership - Inclusion, equity and digital on 18 July and Digital leadership - Digital enterprise in heritage on 25 July. They're designed for senior leaders of medium and large UK heritage organisations, so if you fit the bill then please come along!

Then, a bit further down the line, we'd love you to join us for our own free TEA Break session about Digital Participation on 14 September. We'll be exploring how (or even if) digitally technology can bring archives and communities closer, looking at our current Digitally Democratising Archives project as a case study.

  • The SCP Foundation is my favourite online collaborative writing project - a fictional secret organisation responsible for capturing and containing various paranormal, supernatural, and other mysterious phenomena. The oldest entry, SCP-173, used an artwork by Izumi Kato with his retrospective but unwilling permission, but they made the decision after 15 years to take it down as its popularity means they cannot guarantee its non-commercial licence.

  • Popular Minecraft Youtuber Technoblade died from cancer only a few days ago. His posthumous video hits hard, and the outpouring of grief online is another reminder of the power and importance of online communities.
