Online Event Curating in the Age of Covid-19 with Cecilia Wee gave an overview of issues to consider when curating events online, exploring three main areas: bodies in digital space, what care and access looks like, and the economics of online events. Cecilia showed a number of international examples, including #WithForAbout2020 online conference, co-curated by Cecilia and the vacuum cleaner (artist and mental health activist), to unpack what is possible (and needed) with curating online and draw out some practical tips.
Here are the links below that Cecilia references as being in the chat during the webinar:
