Navigating the Issues of Large-Scale Multimedia Projects

Michael Edson, Smithsonian American Art Museum, USA

Large-scale Web, multimedia, and digitization projects tend to define a point where creative and strategic vision collide with organizational reality. Understanding the contractual, legal, technical, and creative components of these projects ahead of time can help museums establish realistic expectations and ensure successful collaboration between internal teams and external contractors.

This workshop will review case studies and sample materials from a variety of museum projects to give participants a practical road map for defining a project, building internal support, soliciting proposals from vendors and contractors, and managing people, processes, and money.
