Most European countries are more or less easing the lockdown the coming weeks. We can slowly return to our routines, we can start thinking about working with our collections again. One of the first measures that will impact our community, is re-opening our museums and galleries. We have to work out how we can offer an optimal service, despite of the safety measures and we have to figure out how to offer Covid19-compatible activities. But there is still great uncertainty on many levels. Taking all of this into account: do we really have to re-open as soon as possible? How do we manage to re-open? What are the main difficulties we have to overcome? How can we still organize true interaction with our visitors?
The meeting will be moderated by Maria Economou, Vice-Chair of Universeum and Andrew Simpson, Vice-Chair of UMAC.
