Public institutions share repositories under #StayAtHome action

Numerous institutions, temporarily closed due to the coronavirus epidemic, run or co-run by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, including museums, philharmonics, operas, theatres, libraries and institutes, have shared their repositories online, enabling contact with art from home.

A special offer has been prepared by the likes of the Polish History Museum and the Grand Theatre-National Opera, as well as by the public television TVP and the Polish Radio, under the #ZostanWDomu (#StayAtHome) banner,.

"Let's visit, listen to concerts, read, watch and contemplate art", the Ministry of Culture wrote on its website.

Museums make their collections available to visitors online, they offer virtual walks, but they also often have special educational offers for youngsters, including mini games and movies.

Philharmonics and operas have also prepared material aimed at music enthusiasts. Their bundle includes recordings of internet broadcasts of concerts, audio recordings of disc releases and also video interviews with artists.

Institutes that spread knowledge also use electronic communication channels to reach the largest possible audience - both adults and children.

Polish Radio has also joined the "Stay at home" campaign, offering a plethora of podcasts from various cultural fields.

For those currently residing in Poland, public television TVP provides a special digital VOD platform on which it showcases 836 titles for free, including 41 feature films, 75 feature series, 30 documentaries, 4 animated series for children and 10 television theatre performances.
