Virtual meetings on Zoom have become a recurring feature of both our social and working lives, from regular weekly meetings for remote work to weekend catch-up chats with friends far away. And after two months, a lot of us are looking for ways to inject something new into our physically-distanced social lives.
We're here to help with a new series of virtual meeting backgrounds, all perfectly suited to transport you back in time through Canadian art! We've selected and optimized these three artworks from KWAG's Permanent Collection that will add colour, light and atmosphere to your next virtual video call.
Learn how to update your Zoom background at this link, or follow these instructions to use these backgrounds on Microsoft Teams.
