About the Event

Although experiencing museums cannot be separated from their physicality, with the onset of COVID-19, museums are rapidly moving away from the tactile towards digitality. Join us for a virtual panel between museum professionals tackling the questions about accessibility in Post COVID Museums and how they will be experienced.

The panel will also focus on how social media and online platforms can be used as tools to improve accessibility and inclusivity in the museum sector while at the same time discussing the importance of physical experiences. As museums develop resources using virtual displays and online experiences, the conference addresses subjects such as audience diversification, geography non-specific audience building, language inclusion on predominantly English online platforms and the changing nature of the museum experience.
