British Museum National Programmes – Going Virtual

Going Virtual: Moving outreach work online during the COVID-19 pandemic

A live webinar with Q&A on Tuesday 23 March 202116:00 GMT.

Led by the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI), this webinar with Q&A will explore how the team delivered six outreach programmes virtually during lockdown, as part of a wider project called Making the Future. Benefitting over 120 participants aged 7-70s, these programmes have ranged from filmmaking and archiving to comic book-making and photo embroidery, and have produced outstanding creative outputs.

Join the PRONI team as they showcase some of the work produced and talk about the process of moving their work online. They will also discuss the issues raised in relation to preservation, creativity and access – as well as the strengths and limitations of going virtual.
