The Shed was just under a year old when Covid-19 forced cultural institutions to explore digital platforms as an alternative to maintaining meaningful connections with visitors.

Join, Dupe Ajayi, Intersectional Marketing Strategist; Lily Wan, Digital Content Producer and Ezra Wiesner, Chief Technology Officer for this discussion on digital’s position in creating connections.
