Revising the Internet site

A new “virtual house” for the Académie Desprez


Our Website today

The current Website of the Académie Desprez, association française pour le rayonnement du Théâtre du Château de Drottningholm et du Musée Suédois du Théâtre is complete and satisfying. It contributes, in three languages, to the existence of The Académie Desprez around the world and is a “reference document” for social contacts. The Website also testifies to the seriousness and excellence of our activities related to other institutions we intend to communicate with. With more than 18 000 visits over the past twelve months, the Internet site helps quite accurately the Académie Desprez to contribute to the influence of Drottningholms Slottsteater and Sveriges Teatermuseum.

Moreover, the Website is our special way to share and spread our “encyclopédie”. Therefore, it is also a favourable place for knowledge management, expressed and shared by the active members of the Académie Desprez, especially the researchers. Finally, it is a place for information upon the academy’s life.

The reasons for changing

  1. A necessary change of design
    The “frame architecture” is no longer satisfying

  • Search engine search
    With more than 18 000 visits a year, it’s easy to guess that numerous visitors come up to our Website using a search engine. In that case, visitors access our pages without getting the “menu” on their screen. Therefore, they might well never see the other pages of our Website and just ignore who we are!

  • Printing
    The frame architecture also always makes it difficult to print pages properly.

  1. A wish expressed by our members

  • Larger exchange possibilities
    In the inquiry conducted among our members in September 2004, several people set out the request of having larger exchange possibilities in our Website.

  • Brighter colours
    Some also expressed the wish that the Website should have brighter colours and be more illustrated

  1. An opportunity to keep on questioning the content of our site

A total revising of the Website is also an excellent opportunity to revisit its content and make proper decisions on what should be kept or changed, especially as the Académie Desprez is developing.
