Staff from the Port Moody Station Museum will share how, as a small organization they transitioned from a normal pre-Covid year into full lockdown and later into reopening the doors under tight pandemic restrictions. Topics covered include how to engage audiences with digital programming, events and social media strategies, how to handle team work when working from home, caring for the mental health of staff and volunteers, reaching out into the community and what lessons can be carried forward into the future. Staff from Science World will explore how they moved programs online along with some of the platforms, staffing models, technology, and challenges they have encountered along the way.
