Webinar: Breaking the Glass Case: Using Film and Virtual Reality in a Small Museum
Wednesday, March 6, 2019, 12:30pm EST

Creating film and Virtual Reality (VR) content, one small museum is giving visitors and partners a chance to reach out and touch the museum collections, the natural environment and the past. This webinar will share the experience of producing and using traditional and VR films to break down barriers in understanding and to generate new synergies. Find out how this project built local and international collaboration, audiences and partnerships in a small rural community.

Based on one of the most popular and highly rated sessions at the OMA 2018 Conference, this webinar brings this fascinating and inspiring conference session to a wider audience!
