Janet Alderman | Digital Marketing Manager| Apples and Snakes
Janet has been working in a digital capacity for nearly ten years and started her journey working with companies such as Travis Perkins, Avon and Sky. Museums always felt like home so she retrained with an MA in Museum Studies from the University of Leicester, and specialised in digital experiences in the gallery. She has worked in the arts for four years for the Jewish Museum London, BFI, Culture24 and now for Apples and Snakes. Alongside, she is a freelancer in digital heritage with The Museum Platform and is one of the Digital Skills Mentors supporting heritage organisations taking part in The Lab strand of the Digital Heritage Lab.
