Culture As Catalyst: A Conversation on Building Cultural Institutions and New Forms of Engagement in the Arts

Cultural institutions play an important role in connecting and building a community through participation, access, cultural consumption, and inclusion. Institutions are rethinking and redesigning their environments to bring together audiences from various backgrounds. The upcoming webinar addresses the possibilities and challenges of cultural engagement in spaces like museums, galleries, exhibitions and educational institutions.

Ketaki Varma will be discussing how it is crucial to make a cultural space multi-disciplinary for audience development.  She will also talk about the role of digital engagement and collective experiences of cultural and art organisations as a catalyst, and its need to adapt new forms of engagement to generate new opportunities in changing times.
