Webinar | Engagement from a distance

Hoe verzoent u een lopend gemeenschapsproject met social distancing? Voor een aantal publieks- en gemeenschapswerkers is die vraag momenteel brandend actueel. Voor mensen in een kwetsbare situatie is het immers allesbehalve vanzelfsprekend om te participeren aan digitale gemeenschappen, zeker als fysiek samenkomen met anderen essentieel is om mensen in hun welzijn en geestelijke gezondheid te ondersteunen. Toch bieden digitale tools ook dan heel wat interessante mogelijkheden.

Op 9 juni organiseren Museum Dr. Guislain en FARO het internationale webinar Engagement op afstand. Collega's uit heel de wereld delen best practices met elkaar en bespreken hoe engagement op afstand kan opgezet worden. 

Voertaal is Engels.
