Melbourne is a creative city that is intelligently preparing for the changing needs of the community, the environment and the economy, adopting useful innovation that folds seamlessly into how we live our lives to improve our day-to-day experiences. Cultural institutions play a key role in actively connecting makers, thinkers, viewers and players, fostering participation, collaboration and an active dialogue with the creative industries and the general public. Join us for an MTalks panel conversation with local and international visionaries working in digital innovation and creative co-working spaces that are reimagining the role of the museum in the 21st Century. The stellar MTalks cast includes Julia Kaganskiy, the director of New York’s cutting-edge NEW INC; Justine Hyde, director of experience from State Library Victoria; Sebastian Chan, chief experience officer at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI); and Michelle Fitzgerald, chief digital officer and manager of the City of Melbourne’s smart city office.
