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 email@example.com with any questions.
The first session brings together leaders in the sector to discuss the context and need at this moment for digital engagement. Looking at current work in large and small organizations, as well as integrations from other areas of the arts and corporate sector, the conversation will investigate defining becoming digitally confident, exacerbating pressures on digital teams and collaborators, the human and emotional dimension to advancing this work, and critically how this work can be equitable, inclusive, and accessible.
