City Gallery, Wellington: more on web 2,0 ecologies and intersectiions

I have been spending a whole bunch of time this week exploring how some heritage, museum and library places and institutions are using the web 2.0 ecology of practice to explore and extend the things they do.

I have a bunch of examples to perhaps share later, but right now my email just popped up with the latest e-mail newsletter from The City Gallery in Wellington.
Now I have a bit of a soft spot for these guys. Their in house cafe, Nikau, does the best kedgeree in the entire history of the haddock, and their exhibitions always come across as somewhere where the marketing noise is tuned way down low, the better for the visitor to hear what the works are trying to communicate on the wall.

What I hadn't actually picked up on was the extent they were using You Tube to extend the conversation outside the walls by way of a customised YouTube channel.

I recommend you head over there. However, for a quick flavour, here is an embed of one of the spots on the channel.

As a fellow fan of the kedgeree (although the rabbit pappardelle on the menu at the moment is AMAZING) I'd like note that the name of the cafe is Nikau (Icon was at Te Papa).
