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.

Constellation 2.0

In 2020 DFF and ACMI embarked on an extraordinary journey to create an experience that converges stories of screen culture and art enabled by technology. Imagine narratives from diverse corners of the world, orchestrated by ACMI’s XOS middleware. Joins us on our adventure into uncharted territory within our museum spaces and out there in the digital sphere, where our new platform celebrates the vibrant mosaic of global storytelling. However, every great endeavour faces challenges—syncing data from varied sources, balancing human and algorithmic curation and ensuring an immersive user experience. Join us in this exploration where narratives take flight.
