Creating the New Museum Experience: SEGD Exhibition & Experience Design Workshop
Museum directors, designers, technology integrators, architects, and media developers will converge in the world’s museum capital to explore how technology, storytelling, media, and interaction design can attract visitors and keep them coming back.
The two-day workshop will explore the convergent and rapidly evolving practice of exhibition and experience design and how the lines between museums, corporate and visitor exhibitions, and retail are blurring.
Workshop leaders hail from a diverse range of contexts—from exhibition and experience design to web development, typography, science, and brand design. Keynote speakers include award-winning exhibition designers Richard Poulin (Poulin + Morris, New York) and Jonathan Alger (C&G Partners, New York), as well as Monotype type foundry director Allan Haley (Boston), groundbreaking exhibition director Wayne LaBar (ALCHEMY, Maplewood, N.J.), and Gretchen Coss, Gallagher & Associates’ director of business development.
Coss, Poulin, Alger, Haley, and LaBar will be joined by museum directors, technology integrators, media experts, web developers, academics, and retail strategists. Attendees are registered from a wide range of museums (The Newseum, the American Museum of Natural History, the Museum of Jewish Heritage); cultural institutions (National Aquarium, National Archives, Gates Foundation, Franklin Institute); colleges and universities (Corcoran College of Art + Design, University of California Davis, Harvard University, George Washington University); and numerous technology, architecture, and design firms.
