Prominent figures in the museum industry will discuss the future of museums and their designs at the National Museum of the American Indian on February 8.
The speakers at the event are Lanae Spruce (Senior Director, Social Strategy and Special Projects for iOne Digital, formerly from The National Museum of African American History), Josh Goldblum (owner of an award-winning experience design agency, Blue Cadet) and Richard Bentham (an exhibit designer from the National Museum of the American Indian).
The group will talk about “how museums are shaping their narratives to reach new, and more inclusive audiences; trends in experience, space, and exhibit design and strategy; experiences and stories outside of the museum space and what the museum of the future looks like,” according to the event brief.
There will also be a Q&A section following the discussion.
“You’ll walk away from this talk with an understanding of how museum spaces are evolving and emerging trends in design and storytelling,” the organizers say.
You can attend the event that will take place between 2:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. with a ticket priced at $30. The doors open at 1:30 p.m.
The museum is located on the Independence Avenue in Southwest D.C.
Part of the proceeds from the event (10 percent) will go to the AIGA D.C. Design Continuum Fund (DCF) scholarship in order to support underrepresented students receiving education in the field.
