Event of the Week: Friday Night Live, Royal Ontario Museum


Fancy a drink with T-Rex? The Royal Ontario Museum’s autumn season of Friday Night Live events kicked off with Harvest, a night of dancing, local brews, and delicious food. Guests enjoyed an eclectic mix of cupcakes and dinosaurs as they had their fill of entertainment and education! The event featured sharypic’s interactive PhotoWall, so guests were able to see their own and others’ photos broadcast live on screens around the museum. You can see all the photos on sharypic, including one of the dinos enjoying a sneaky drink.

Here’s what Ryan Dodge, the Social Media Coordinator at the museum had to say about using sharypic:

“Our Friday Night Live series of events are always busy on social media platforms, but we wanted to find a way to display photos in real time instead of just text based content at the events. Sharypic was the first platform that allowed us to do that and we couldn’t be happier with the service! The process is simple and straightforward and our visitors have really engaged with it, posting over 150 photos in our first event! It is super easy for followers to post photos of their experience and we receive real time, visual feedback. I would definitely recommend Sharypic for your event if you want to add a social and exciting visual element.”
