The focus will be on providing solutions that do not require technical knowledge or programming (computer coding) expertise. Additionally, the use of collections data to support different museum missions and strategies will be discussed, including the use of data as a way to engage new audiences.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

This workshop will introduce data science principles for the art museum setting. It will introduce techniques that allow museum professionals without extensive technological backgrounds to be able to understand and interpret data within their museums and art galleries. Using new user-friendly data tools, art galleries and museums will be able to benefit through better understanding of their collections, new ways of connecting to their current audiences and potential new audiences, and informed institutional decision-making.

Participants will gain the technical skills necessary to open their collections data to the public and use the data to learn new ways of seeing artifacts through different comparisons and juxtapositions. Participants will learn the basics of data preservation through the use of non-proprietary formats, and how to take control of data outside of a collections management software environment. This workshop will prepare art gallery and museum professionals with the tools they will need to be familiar with given the exponential growth of use of data in art galleries and museums.

  1. Introduction to Data:
    1. What is data?

    2. Using your data to connect departments
    3. Using your data to connect with your audience
