1:30 - 2:15pm Wednesday 23 November, Main Stage (Soundings), Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington, New Zealand

In conversation with Courtney Johnston, Director of the Dowse Art Museum, this will be a discussion of lessons learned from working with museums around the world, and the role of technology in democratizing cultural heritage institutions.

We are delighted to welcome Seb back to New Zealand. Seb is currently Chief Experience Officer at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI). He is in charge of a holistic visitor-centric design strategy for the organisation, and recently helped open ACMI X, a studio for the creative industries. He was previously Director of Digital & Emerging Media at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum in New York, where he was been responsible for the museum’s digital renewal and its transformation into an interactive, playful museum after a 3-year rebuilding and reimagining process. He also has had a parallel life in electronic music and art organising and curating festivals, international touring, and publishing.
