Forum

2021 Victorian Museums and Galleries Forum

Tue 20 Jul, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Forum will bring AMaGA members and the wider sector together to discuss the theme of ‘Digital Literacy -  Audience Engagement and the Visitor Experience'.  This year the Forum will be held in a virtual format.

2020 exposed the increasing importance of digital literacy and need to integrate digital opportunities into institutional plans and strategies. This event will bring together colleagues from across the GLAM and tech sector to explore how new technologies can transform how museums and galleries operate both internally and for audiences.

The Forum will feature national and international guest speakers, lightning presentations and an interactive Q+A. 

The Forum will also hold a virtual AGM for AMaGA Victoria members.
