ICOM WEBINAR | Keeping in touch: digital transformation for museums in the time of COVID-19 Webinar
As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded and museums began to shut their doors at the beginning of 2020, the need for a digital transformation for cultural institution was brought to the fore.
As ICOM’s first survey highlighted, despite the surge in digital activities that we witnessed, this crisis emphasized the structural weaknesses that have for a long time affected museums, in terms of resources and staff dedicated to digital activities and communication.
As an organisation always involved in the challenges that contemporary museums have to face, ICOM chose this topic as the centre of the discussion for the second webinar of our Capacity Building Series, that will take place on the 21st of October, 14:00 Paris time (GTM+2).
This webinar will gather museum professionals from different countries to review:
- Digitization of collections and new opportunities for the publics
- Museum education and lifelong learning online
- Developing crucial digital skills and trainings for heritage professionals
- Generating revenues through digital activities
The webinar will be will be streamed, with simultaneous translation in French, English and Spanish.
The organisation of this project has been possible thanks to the support of the French Ministry of Culture.
