Museum of Brisbane: City in the Sun

Last night, I had the wonderful opportunity to visit the Museum of Brisbane's (MoB) new exhibition, City in the Sun, with the South East Queensland Registrars Network.

Gallery of Modern Art: Great Art Debate

Is there a better way to spend a Sunday night than listening to a talk debating art? For a brief moment, I forgot that tomorrow is Monday. The Great Art Debate was a virtual event that saw classical art and contemporary art go head-to-head to win the hearts and minds of the audience. A huge… Continue reading Gallery of Modern Art: Great Art Debate

MuseumNext Digital Summit: Day Three

For each day of the Digital Summit I'm trying to find an overarching theme that helps me to organise the content I'm watching. For day three, the theme is audience. How can museums ensure that the content they are delivering during the pandemic not only engages but supports their audience? How do we know if… Continue reading MuseumNext Digital Summit: Day Three

MuseumNext Digital Summit: Day Two

If I was asked to summarise day two of the MuseumNext conference in one sentence it would be the following: COVID-19 has accelerated the need for museums to re-consider traditional ways of collecting and venture into the realm of collecting digital content from a diverse audience. I really enjoyed listening to how museums are adapting… Continue reading MuseumNext Digital Summit: Day Two
