Sun 23 Feb 2020, 2.30pm—4pm

ACMI is the world’s most visited moving image museum, with almost 15 million people visiting since opening in 2002. Thanks to investment by the Victorian Government and independent partners the museum is currently in a process of renewal, with a redesigned building and new permanent exhibition due to open soon.

Join the ACMI team as they explore what it means to reimagine the museum for the 21st Century.

A curator, a conservator and a community programmer discuss considerations that go into exhibiting and collecting videogames, and the unique challenges this presents. Speaking will be Arieh Offman, Candice Cranmer and Caitlin Cronin.

3.30–4pm: Interpretation for a New Museum

Join ACMI’s writers and editors as they explore how using new technology and long-form content helps approach museum labels in an innovative way. Speaking will be Matt Millikan and Maria Lewis.
