Art on Tour (or Art on Tour at Home, as we’re increasingly referring to it) is all about bringing more art to more people, all within the safety of their own homes. We’ve spent the last few weeks on a huge learning curve, trying to work the dreaded technology and find the best ways to bring Swindon’s art collection straight to you.
Now we’ve got the ball rolling, the challenge is spreading the word, and ensuring people know that these resources are free and so easily accessible!
So we were thrilled to be invited to have a chat with Sue Kinner on BBC Radio Wiltshire last night, and tell our fabulous county what we’ve got to offer. Our Project Engagement Officer had a lovely time talking to Sue about how we’ve transformed Art on Tour into a digital project.
Amidst an almost impressive number of “ums”, Katie talked about our Art Snaps Podcast, Art Bursts Family activities, and the Go Bananas Daily Art Challenges. She also gave information on how all these fabulous resources are available; through this very blog, on Facebook @ArtonTour2020 and Instagram @swindongalleryartontour.
Thanks to Sue’s expert interview skills, Katie was able to sum up the entire project in just 5 minutes, so if you want to get the lowdown in one quick hit, check out the interview here – https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p088bqq6
We’re on just over half way thorough, but we do of course encourage you to listen to the rest of Sue’s show, which also includes some great tunes!
To round this one off, we’d like to thank BBC Wiltshire for helping us spread the word, and indeed everyone who has supported us so far by taking part or sharing our links with others. Keep up the good work!
Katie and Mags
