Goshen Guide Update
For the past few months, most of the resources for the Goshen Guide have been focused on Wide Angle Films and Talks and on adding new functionality to the Guide. With these new additions, we’re excited to get back to promoting Goshen.Guide itself as a resource for discovering and exploring local information and connections.
The Wide Angle Films and Talks series was envisioned as a way to bring a live, interactive edge to our efforts to help Goshen see a bigger picture of itself, by sharing stories and information through the perspectives of community leaders. We’ve typically set the table for these events by cataloging and curating key information on the Guide. Then we’ve recorded the events and used the Guide to publish and preserve the insights gleaned, to provide convenient jumping off points for future interest. Check out some of the highlights.
In terms of functionality, one of the areas we’ve focused on has been the development of interactive maps to help explore different aspects of Goshen through a geographic lens, such as this map of activities connected to the Goshen Millrace. We’re working on maps of current and historic photos that we hope to share soon.
We’re also trying to navigate the dynamic (and often overwhelming) flow of information on facebook and find a balance between aggregating and sharing content with generating content ourselves to help bring broader info into focus. One outcome is the creation of a new facebook page specifically for the Wide Angle Films and Talks series. Please help us promote this resource by liking and sharing the page–it’ll be the best way to learn about new events and see highlights as they’re published. This new page will help de-saturate the Goshen.Guide facebook page as we highlight featured content.
