Buckinghamshire Culture, Garsington Opera and Resource Productions hosted an online event for the creative and cultural sector sharing digital adaptations and innovative virtual delivery skills and tips on 11th February 2021.
During the Covid-19 pandemic we have seen creative and cultural organisations innovate, re-frame and develop online content thanks to rapid learning and adaptation. To support those coming back to work, or looking for new ideas for engagement, Buckinghamshire Culture, in partnership with Garsington Opera and Resource Productions, worked together to develop this online workshop.
The programme of speakers included contributors from Buckinghamshire and beyond covering a range of topics:
- Adapting and pivoting activities for online engagement
- Sharing tips for use of digital tools such as Zoom, Whatsapp, Youtube, Google classroom etc
- Engaging vulnerable people online
- Supporting those with multiple needs or limited experience to engage online
- Skills and performance tips for online delivery
- Working inclusively online
- Opening doors to collections and resources using virtual access
- Increasing certain audiences who might prefer online engagement
- Working with artists and practitioners in a digital space
- Demonstrating creative content online
- Tips for successful online engagement.
Each contributor was asked to produce a resource relating to their presentation or session that could be shared with those attending the live event, and beyond.
