New Technologies, New Narratives

A discussion on new paradigms for museum engagement with Brendan Ciecko, founder & CEO of Cuseum along with Anjchita B. Nair, co-founder & COO of Cultre.

Recent years have seen the evolving of a new paradigm with growing digitisation of museums, leveraged by innovative technologies. This talk aims to highlight how digital engagement has become integral to the fabric of museum experience. Museums around the world are exploring the possibilities afforded by innovative digital tools to unlock new narratives. Hybrid and phygital models are also being explored to enhance the interconnectedness of digital and physical experiences. This talk shall further deliberate on the digital strategies and trends that museums need to be cognizant of, to keep up with the continuous technological explosion. With the understanding that technology and digital interventions are a means to an end and not a goal itself, the discussion will focus on practical and promising avenues for the future of museums.
