Ever wondered how exactly a museum is run? Or how collections at ACM are being cared for?
Like with many industries, museum and heritage work has changed during this global pandemic. Live on ACM’s Facebook page this Friday, join a conversation with ACM director Kennie Ting and museum staff as they share how the museum keeps culture and heritage work going amidst the COVID-19 situation.
What can visitors expect when the museum reopens? Through this interactive discussion, learn how ACM has been functioning during this lockdown period, and what digital initiatives they’ve undertaken to keep visitors engaged with art and culture.
This is a unique opportunity to get a firsthand look behind-the-scenes with museum professionals at ACM. During the session, you can submit your questions and thoughts live on ACM’s Facebook page. The team looks forward to hearing your ideas on how museums might change and adapt.
