National Museum of Wales – Collecting Covid: Wales 2020 – They are collecting the story of now.
“We want to hear about your experiences and feelings of living in Wales during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Since 1937, we have been using questionnaires to collect information on how people in Wales live their lives.
By responding to this questionnaire, your story will become part of the national memory at St Fagans National Museum of History, ensuring that future generations will be able to learn about life in Wales during this extraordinary time.
At the end of the questionnaire, you can also contribute up to 5 digital files (photographs, voice recordings or videos), and let us know if you have an object you’d like to donate.”

Camden Art Centre – Botanical Art: The Botanical Mind: Art, Mysticism and The Cosmic Tree
“Drawing on indigenous traditions from the Amazon rainforest; alternative perspectives on Western scientific rationalism; and new thinking around plant intelligence, philosophy and cultural theory, The Botanical Mind Online investigates the significance of the plant kingdom to human life, consciousness and spirituality across cultures and through time. It positions the plant as both a universal symbol found in almost every civilisation and religion across the globe, and the most fundamental but misunderstood form of life on our planet.
This new online project brings together digital commissions, podcasts, films, texts, images and audio in an expanding archive that will be updated and added to regularly over the coming weeks.”
Foundation Beyeler – has Hopper videos, that are quiet good.
White Chapel Gallery – I receive their email newsletter and througout the lockdown their Blog has continued to demonstrate a commitment to current affairs associated to art. Also each week:
we are screening a film from our extraordinary Artists’ Film Internationalproject, and in the near future we will add audio-recordings featuring some of the greatest thinkers and creators of our time.

Such as: Picasso, Hockney, Monet to Matisse, Hogarth (I was fortunate to have a tutor create a Hogarth module at Uni for myself and other interested students.), Manet,
Artfund – has been collating virtual tours too. Some of them are repeats of the above though.
