Stay at home and enjoy the best of the world's arts and culture for free, writes WILL YEOMAN

No matter where in the world we find ourselves, we love attending live concerts, opera, ballet and theatre. We love strolling around an art gallery, a museum or a famous garden or work of architecture. These things enhance not only our understanding of a place and a culture. They enrich our outer and inner lives beyond measure. They are a part of what it means to be human.

They also bring great solace in times of need. But for now, we’re going to have to enjoy these activities from the safety and comfort of our homes. Luckily, some of the world’s premier arts and culture organisations — including right here in Australia — have well-established websites and social media channels featuring virtual tours, extensive catalogues, sound and image archives and livestreaming.

That’s why we’ve set up this Virtual Culture Vulture page. It will feature regularly updated news of forthcoming local, national and international livestreamed concerts, operas, ballets and theatre performances, as well as links to digital concert halls, video archives and virtual tours of art galleries, libraries, museums and more. Most are free.
