Session II: Reimagining Audience Engagement
The isolating impact of COVID-19 has changed the way people interact with museums and science centers, especially exhibitions and educational programs. While some audience groups turned to online content and virtual programming as a way to find relief from the isolation and stress, others looked for meaningful learning experiences for children and adults. At the same time, social and political drivers of change reinforced the need to discuss what roles museums play in embracing social justice as well as diversity, equality, and accessibility. How have museum audiences changed because of the pandemic? Will these changes remain relevant after museums return to normal?
