1 – Accessibility and The Met: How Facebook Live Provides Inclusivity

Tuesday 29 May
03:20 PM
Case Study


In the last six months, The Metropolitan Museum of Art has strategically planned Facebook Live broadcasts to be inclusive to a wide range of audiences. Facebook Live broadcasts have been led by curators and educators in American Sign Language, Spanish and Korean with plans to expand to more languages and audiences. This session will look at case studies of how The Met organized, executed and assessed three different Facebook Live events and will discuss how other museums can strategically think about who they are reaching through live broadcasting and how these events can be accessible and successful.
