From social media to video streaming, technology plays an essential role in how we connect with the world around us. We rely on it for work, information and entertainment, and over the past twenty years it has completely revolutionised the way we access and engage with content.
It is therefore no surprise that museums are looking to utilise technology in order to help draw in crowds, enrich their exhibitions, and extend reach. And one of the most effective tools for achieving this aim is undoubtedly livestreaming.
Livestreaming is a medium that allows museums to beam their exhibits and activities to screens around the world, increasing audience engagement with, and recognition of, the museum’s offering. But how can a museum utilise livestreaming in an effective way? And how big of a role can it really play in growing a museum’s impact and achieving success?
