This initiative will involve: i) digital program content development; ii) planning to support a concurrent website redesign project (which is being funded separately) that will strengthen the delivery of digital content; ii) staff training on effective digital engagement strategies; and iii) the implementation of a variety of digital programs and activities aimed at school, family, youth and adult audiences across the country and the world. The proposed project will enable the Museum to respond to the growing public demand for digital museum programming that has arisen due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
