In a year of unprecedented isolation, audience demand for digital content has rocketed. This session will consider how galleries can harness new opportunities for audience engagement and share their programs online. Learn how Victoria Together shared digital experiences to connect, inspire, entertain and inform all Victorians throughout lockdown, why Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery (MPRG) launched their own online platform MPRG TV, and the impact of digital exclusion and why internet access alone is not enough for digital inclusion.
