How museums can use technology to take art and history to people
Museums are repositories of history, culture and societies, and in the future may display items that will remind us of the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, museums are among the worst hit spaces and the pandemic is forcing new ways of accessing them.
Ausheritage is delighted to welcome back to its fold our first Honorary Life members, Ian Cook AM and Heather Mansell. This fascinating dyadic interview is a compelling eyewitness account of their active leadership involvement in many of the key Ausheritage activities over more than 20 years.
