For those visitors who have been on a behind the scenes tour of the Museum's exhibitions department you will know that most of their work and meetings take place in their 'tea room'.
During #lockdown they have found a new digital space to work from home, but it comes with its own benefits and drawbacks.
Wesley Flanagan, Assistant Director of the Exhibitions Department writes "although we can now work in our slippers those of you using this technology will know screens freeze up, participants get lost and conversations get scrambled but with a sense of humour we are learning to navigate our new normal."
