We picked Anna’s brain about her career in the screen industry and how as ANZ Partner Manager at Google Arts & Culture she balances the craziness and speed of the tech world with the more stately pace of the arts & culture sector.

We also discussed how tech is helping some of these institutions cope during the COVID-19 lockdown.
