…visit museums, view live music, watch dance, explore science centres, all from the comfort of your home. #CultureDoesntStop
Resource Sharing: The BC Museums Association (BCMA) and Arts BC are excited to announce CultureOnline.ca. This digital portal showcases how the province’s museums, art galleries, artists, and cultural organizations are responding to the COVID-19 shutdowns, through live streaming events, programs and online resources that allow British Columbians to experience culture from the comfort, and safety, of their own homes.
The website enables British Columbians to search hundreds of live streams from arts and cultural organizations, resources for educators and families, and tours of award-winning cultural sites from around the province.
“Museums are awesome and the creativity of artists is unmatched, but our sectors have never encountered a challenge like that one being posed by COVID-19. It’s essential that we close to the public, but that doesn’t mean that we’re going to stop sharing our passions with British Columbians,” explained Ryan Hunt, Executive Director of the BC Museums Association, “That’s why we created CultureOnline.ca, to showcase innovative online projects, like the Royal BC Museum’s new RBCM@Home initiative.”
