Cortina Productions’ own producer, Brent Feito is participating in the Virginia Association of Museums’ (VAM) Annual Conference on March 12-15, 2016. A part of a panel, called Revolutionary Media, on how engaging, interactive media can be integrated into a museum’s education programs, galleries, and marketing and fundraising, Brent is excited to participate in VAM’s 2016 Annual Conference and be a part of the greater discussion among the experienced museum educators, project managers and other media producers who are presenting.
This year’s conference focuses on the theme: A Revolution in Traditions. Taking place in the “Historic Triangle” of Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown, the conference will explore topics on how museums and cultural institutions are breaking out of the traditional models to further engage and inspire their visitors. All the presentations will focus on topics that explore the changing mindset of the industry in the way they reach new audiences, create new exhibition design, pursue new approaches, use new technologies, and research new ideas.
Along with staff from the Virginia Historical Society and the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, which is building new exhibits and creating media experiences for the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown replacing the Yorktown Victory Center in Fall 2016, Brent will be there to share experiences of both in house and out of house production in the development of the new museum. “Revolutionary Media will be a great presentation to start your institution’s journey into the world of museum media,” says Brent, who is looking forward to explaining how museum media that inspires can be produced at many different budget levels.
