COVID-19: STORIES AND IMPLICATIONS FOR THE FIELD

Museums and galleries face enormous challenges as they are forced to close their doors in the wake of COVID-19 - but this doesn’t mean they can’t connect with their public. The potential for online collections, concerts and virtual tours to provide a refuge of calm and fill the void created by social distancing is unprecedented.

This Special Edition of Cultural News, a curated collection of stories about how the global pandemic is affecting cultural institutions and how they are rising to the challenge by increasing their digital presence online, features Ayala Museum's Online Resources for Learning & Creativity Online. Join Ayala Museum's #ArtFromHome Challenge, binge some of their Youtube videos, explore their Google Art and Culture online exhibitions, and more.

Lord Cultural Resources have implemented our telepresence strategy

We’re seeing more of our clients than ever before! Why?

As we all work to help slow the spread of the coronavirus, we at Lord have implemented our telepresence strategy, holding all our meetings on Zoom.

We look forward to seeing our clients around the globe face-to-face again once the pandemic is under control. In the meantime, we provide advanced telepresence services that allow projects to stay on schedule, and also offer many advantages: Sophisticated tools (including breakout rooms, survey, polls, and more) facilitate rich participant feedback and interaction. We can also record and transcribe all online meetings, providing a valuable reference for your team and ours.
