Seb Chan
Friday April 5, 2:00 pm
YCBA Lecture Hall, 1080 Chapel Street

Sebastian Chan is director of Digital & Emerging Media at the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York. He is responsible for the Museum's complete digital renewal and re-imagining as it undergoes a major renovation. Previously based at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, he is known for his expertise in open access, mass networked collaboration, digital strategy, cultural sector metrics, and cultivating innovation in the cultural sector. In this talk Seb Chan will detail some of the ways that his teams at Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, New York, and formerly at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney have made the most of often sparse collection metadata to enable new forms of access and knowledge creation.

All welcome.
