The Creative Commons has been well-articulated online, but what does it look like in the physical world? Join creative professionals from SFMOMA, the Oakland Museum, and beyond for an interactive salon on the growth of user participation and sharing in museums and cultural institutions. This event will include a workshop component where you can experiment with redesigning an art exhibition for more social, collaborative engagement.

Our panelists for the evening include:

Jake Barton, founder of Local Projects, a media design firm for physical space whose projects include the 9/11 Memorial Museum, the Official NYC Information Center and StoryCorps

Anne Bast, Intellectual Property Associate for San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. She received her MSI from the University of Michigan School of Information and, before moving to the Bay Area last summer, spent 18 months studying and working in cultural heritage institutions in France.

Kathleen Mclean, principal of Independent Exhibitions, a museum consulting firm specializing in exhibition development, design, programming, and strategic planning. In 2006, she was selected for the American Association of Museums’ Centennial Honor Role, as one of 100 museum professionals to have made a significant contribution to American museums over the last 100 years.

Nina Simon, principal of Museum 2.0, a design firm that creates participatory, dynamic, audience-centered exhibitions and learning spaces. She is the author of The Participatory Museum (2010) and has been named a "museum visionary" by Smithsonian Magazine.

Hope to see you there!
