Learn how cultural organizations in Canada and the United States have been engaging communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Field Trip: Art Across Canada is an online platform that delivers arts experiences with some of Canada’s most celebrated artists in a national partnership with 60 leading arts organizations. Created in response to COVID-19, Field Trip provides a collaborative model for museums to engage communities through online arts activities, reach diverse audiences and support artists during times of crisis. The D.C. Art Science Evening Rendezvous (DASER) is a long running public program series of the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. that has transformed into a monthly online forum during the pandemic to engage a broader global community of people interested in intersections of science and art. DASER features short presentations by a mix of artists and scientists, highlighting the work happening between disciplines, with the goal of fostering new connections and collaborations.
