How do you reconcile an ongoing community project with social distancing? For a number of practitioners and community workers, this question is currently very important. After all, it is far from self-evident for people in a vulnerable situation to participate in digital communities. Certainly if meeting physically with others and doing hands-on activities are essential to support their wellbeing and mental health. To explore how we can develop expertise to support people in a vulnerable situation online, some partners from the heritage and mental healh sectors in Flanders came together. They already are working together in a series of projects in the program Cultural heritage, health and wellbeing. With this international webinar ‘Engagement from a distance’ they want to share best practices and discuss the topic of community engagement from a distance with colleagues from all over the world. Organized by Museum Dr. Guislain and FARO. Flemish interface centre for cultural heritage
