SEMF Study Day March 2021: Remote audience programmes — what have we learnt so far?

Monday 8th March, 10.00am-12.30pm

With daily life still far from normal we will be taking a look at how museums and other heritage organisations in our region have been adapting to engaging with audiences remotely. Through a range of case studies, we will be hearing about how we have still been reaching schools and communities in new ways, and what has been learnt so far.
