Virtually Social is an online meet up for people interested in Public Engagement and Science Communication.

We will hear from three museum professionals who have been forging new paths in the museum. Dan leads LQBTQ+ collection tours, Florence created the world’s first vagina museum and Stephen co-curates collections and has worked on the reparation of sacred objects.
