How to run a virtual Slow Art Day?

We just gathered museums from around the world and had a great roundtable discussion about how to run a virtual Slow Art Day amidst this Covid-19 crisis.

Watch the discussion below:

Or, you can also read a summary of some of the key questions and ideas as compiled by our Slow Art Day intern Johanna Bokedal.

This Sunday, March 29 at 11am NYC time, we plan to run a Zoom training session for educators and curators and others involved in virtual Slow Art Day planning. If you want to join that, then respond to this post in the comments (we’ll also be inviting hosts via email).

As more and more museums, galleries, and cultural centers around the world or choosing to or are required to close their physical locations given the rapidly escalating situation around Covid-19, many of our host institutions are scaling up their digital presence.

Some of our hosts are planning to offer virtual Slow Art Day events on April 4, for anyone from around the world to take part in. To see a list of virtual Slow Art Day events, click here and look for events marked “VIRTUAL EVENT.” More virtual events will be added in the coming weeks.

We hope you’ll join be able to join us virtually for some slow looking on April 4. If you’re interested in organizing a virtual Slow Art Day event, get in touch.
