‘Thank you and bravo’: an onsite-to-online success story

So often, so much of the content, creativity and resources that go into and result from exhibitions are lost to the public domain once the physical exhibition closes. This session looks at how Covid created a space that enabled us to look afresh at the relationship between gallery and screen, and an opportunity to create a new kind of content-rich online exhibition that enhanced the onsite visitor experience and dramatically extended public access to two important, complex and powerful histories. The session will talk through challenges faced and insights gained, and how they have changed the way we make exhibitions.
