We are pleased to welcome Seb Chan, Chief Experience Officer at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, to share his experiences of setting up labs and opening up collaborative spaces for external partners in order to boost digital transformation and development.
In response to the increasing pressure to raise competence within digital productions, methods and mindsets, many museums chose to dedicate teams and departments to digital transformation and development. Other solutions are setting up Digital labs and attending long term training programmes. One key factor is to dedicate time and space for experimentation and to learn how to build capacity to meet stakeholders’ demands and audience’s needs.
