As museums across the United States have closed their doors to mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus, many are still adjusting to our current reality and are making phased plans to reopen to the public. But where to start?
To help you and your institution navigate in response to COVID-19, and to successfully and safely reopen in the coming months, we at WMA present to you a variety of carefully selected resources, recommendations, and guidelines for your adaptation and use.
On our COVID-19 Resources page, you’ll find a variety of key industry resources, communication strategies, social media and digital engagement guidance, and the latest WMA articles on COVID-19. You’ll also find our set of Workflow Recommendations for Reopening Museums. Recognizing that every museum has their own unique situation, we designed these recommendations for you to easily adapt, and use as an aid in your internal discussions on how to safely approach your work both during this present time, and while reopening.
We also realize that as we continue to stay home, it's important to take this time to expand upon our skillsets, to educationally and professionally grow. To help, we’ve established a Webinars and Educational Resources page where you can stay up-to-date on relevant upcoming webinars, catch up on previously-aired webinar recordings, and read through a slew of educational assets that are useful for teaching, learning, and growing.
We hope that what is offered on these pages will be of use to you, your organization, and your community.
If you have any resources you’d like to contribute or webinars you’d like us to share, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
