Lucie Paterson is at the forefront of change and innovation in the museum field. With twelve years experience at leading cultural organisations, including Te Papa in New Zealand, Southbank Centre in London and now as Head of Experience, Product & Digital at ACMI in Melbourne, Lucie’s work shapes the exhibitions and experiences that will lead our sector into the future.
Now more than ever, museums need to be more visitor-facing and data informed. Lucie is committed to harnessing these opportunities and understands the challenges this poses for small to medium and large institutions. She is passionate about helping them make the necessary transformation in the digital era.
Over the last three years her work has won Australian (AMAGA) and international awards (GLAMi), and digital products made under Lucie’s guidance have been adopted around the world in the UK, South America and New Zealand. Her current work focuses on the recently opened $40m redevelopment of ACMI, building a new institution of interactive media and screen culture.
Lucie is on the board of National Digital Forum in New Zealand, presents at conferences in Australia and overseas and writes regularly about museum process change and practices online.
