New York, January 16, 2019 – The Association of Art Museum Curators (AAMC) Foundation is pleased to announce Digital & Outward Engagement, the next installment in its regional In-Conversation series. Slated for Tuesday, February 26 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, this discussion features six perspectives on building bridges between museums and their audiences through the use of ever-evolving technologies and digital tools. Moving past social media and traditional websites, this event brings together Philadelphia’s leading voices to dig deeper into the ways in which technology can help advance dialogues with visitors, donors, colleagues, and the larger global community. They will touch on the current efforts and platforms in the digital sector, and consider ways in which they could be used to help better connect with audiences. With a look at the topic from varying perspectives, we’ll also have the opportunity to reflect on ways to collaborate as well.

Moderated by Christopher D.M. Atkins, Ph.D, Agnes & Jack Mulroney Associate Curator of European Painting & Sculpture and Manager, Curatorial Digital Programs & Initiatives, Philadelphia Museum of Art, this program features Aaron Miller, Senior Producer, Digital Media, The Franklin Institute; William Noel, Associate University Librarian & Director, Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts Director, Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies, Penn Libraries; Ariel Schwartz, Kathy and Ted Fernberger Associate Director of Interactive Technologies, Philadelphia Museum of Art; Susan Lubowsky Talbott, Executive Director, The Fabric Workshop and Museum; and Neville Vakharia, Program Director, Arts Administration Campus Program and Associate Professor and Research Director, Drexel University, Westphal College of Media Arts & Design.

This In-Conversation will be at the Lecture Auditorium at the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Perelman Building on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 from 6:30pm - 8:00pm, and will be followed by a short reception from 8:00pm - 8:30pm. Space is limited so pre-registration is required. Please click here to visit the event page and reserve your seat before Monday, February 25.


About In-Conversation 

Launched in 2016, our In-Conversation series is the AAMC Foundation’s regional programming outreach that brings together local communities and expands networks. We host two to three events a year, each held in a different central regional area—this additional programming touch point encourages a dialogue amongst attendees and with our organization.  With registration open to the public, and speakers sourced from varied sectors related to the arts and philanthropy, we work to make connections across fields, backgrounds, and experiences. Examining important issues within the art world, the open dialogue format promotes collegiality across institutions; creates deeper relationships with our work; and lends local perspectives to field-wide issues. By continuing to add access to topics including advocacy and inclusion through this series, we continue to support our vision while fostering a dialogue within each local sector. Past events have included: Multiple Voices to Build Inclusion, held in Seattle; Behind the Career Curtain, held in Chicago; Spark: Igniting Curiosity, the Curator's Impact, held in Toronto; Art and Social Justice, held in Los Angeles; Addressing Implicit Bias in Museums, held in Washington, D.C.; Preventing Looting: What Curators & All Museum Staff Can Do held in NYC; and Museum Directors on the Curatorial Role, held in Boston.
