About this Event

Digital Engagement Series

If it wasn’t evident prior, the pandemic has emphasized the nonprofit arts sector’s need to dismantle the silos prohibiting collaboration in digital engagement. In recognition of this, the Association of African American Museums, American Alliance of Museums, Association of Art Museum Curators, Association of Art Museum Directors, Association of Academic Museums and Galleries, Museum Association of the Caribbean, and the Museum Computer Network have aligned, for the first time, to present an online series bringing together their constituencies to advance the museum community’s digital projects. Together the associations have partnered with the School of Museum Studies, University of Leicester and their ‘One by One’ project, a multi-partner international initiative, gathering together cultural organizations, policy makers, academics, professional bodies, support agencies, and communities of practice, to build digitally confident art organizations by helping them better define, improve, measure and embed the digital literacy of their staff and volunteers in all roles and at all levels. 

Through this program, we hope to offer a deeper understanding of the current successes, to emphasize the necessary aspects of team building and shared accountability in digital projects; and to share research and findings through the One-by-One initiatives.

Organized by AAMC in collaboration with our partners, please contact with any questions.

Session #3

Ways Forward

Wednesday, February 24

12:00 - 1:15pm ET

While the global pandemic has accelerated the use of online solutions, tools, and services, it has also exposed that a digitally enabled world works for some, but not all equally. This third discussion gathers international perspectives to discuss meaningful and relevant digital strategies, to identify new partnerships and models of working, to consider what a hybrid world might look like, and how to move forward the sector together.

Speaker details to come.
