Over the past year, we have all experienced unprecedented uncertainty within our respective institutions. Design historians and practitioners have been called upon to reconfigure and adapt their practice to virtual classrooms, studios and labs. In this series of events we have called Teaching and Learning, Design History and Practice in the Virtual Space, we have brought together design historians and practitioners, curators, museum professionals and archivists who are re-evaluating how to engage with students and audiences in the virtual space. Some are also confronting ongoing reticence in diversifying the geographies and identities that we teach and research, reimagining the scope of histories of design. For some, these transitions have been seamless, whilst others have faced overwhelming challenges.
In this third event of the series we are calling: Virtual Learning: Museums and Heritage. For this event we have bought together a number of speakers from Central St Martins, The National Gallery, London, and The Mariners Museum, Newport News, VA
