Museums Association | Digital Futures: Embracing New Strategies

The Covid pandemic has changed our understanding of digital engagement and forced museums to think more creatively about how to reach and connect with different audiences. Hear from a wide range of expert speakers and discover how they have experimented with digital engagement during the pandemic.

Learn about practical case studies and opportunities to ask questions and discuss some of the issues affecting your museum, the programme addresses online abuse, acting ethically and digital poverty. A panel discussion examines what we have learnt from the pandemic – and looking ahead to where innovation and opportunity may lie.
