The COVID-19 Challenge: Museums and their digital engagement in times of crises. Results of the Solidarity Project of AVICOM, MPR and ICOM Germany
In this collective endeavour AVICOM and MPR with support by ICOM Germany have worked out, in dialogue with leading representatives of museums, the status quo of their digital/hybrid presence. Therefore, MPR has realized narrative interviews with representatives all over the world. The results are highly interesting interview films. AVICOM has analysed the digital presence (websites, social media) of these and other museums and their digital strategies in the pandemic period and evaluated them with a view to innovation, inclusion and sustainability. The joint session reports about the project results, shows extracts of the narrative movies, presents best practice examples and invites 5-Min-contributions and a wider discussion.
