Silver Linings 3: Now Normal to New Normal

Thu 11 Jun, 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

 

In the middle of May ENVi wrote a description for our next Silver Linings session:

As our cultural organisations and workplaces reimagine themselves in a variety of reopening scenarios we take a moment to consider what programming might look like in a post-pandemic Victoria. But the future has come sooner than everyone thought, and ‘reimagining’ is not the leisurely, considered approach we thought it might be. Join us again on Zoom to consider what we might keep and what me might work with and the imminent possibility that the general public and school groups are back.

 This presentation will be introduced by Christine Healey, ENVi President and Incinerator Gallery. Conversation facilitated by Michelle Kiag, National Trust of Australia (Victoria) with Sue Burgess, Shrine of Remembrance and Andrew Hiskens, Museum Consultant.  Hosted by Celia Mallard, Australian Museums and Galleries Association Victoria.

For now, please continue to share your best COVID-19, learning and working from home memes and helpful articles with us on Facebook.

A link to Zoom will be emailed to registered attendees prior to the meeting. You can try the Zoom Test Room earlier if you are keen to see how it works.
