Alba Graduate Business School, The American College of Greece and SEV (Hellenic Federation of Enterprises) have the honor to invite you to the third event of The Lead Creatively: Discussion Series which will take place on Friday, April 12 at 18:00 at Alba's amphitheater. The event is organized by the SEV Center of Excellence in Creative Leadership.
The interactive speech entitled “Outreach and Creativity: Libraries, Archives, and Museums” will be held by Dr Maria Georgopoulou, Director of the Gennadius Library, American School of Classical Studies at Athens.
Historically libraries have been repositories of knowledge, secure places for the preservation of books, manuscripts and more. How do libraries adapt to the newly available flood of information via the internet in order to remain relevant? The role of the curator is crucial in figuring out ways to showcase the material through old and new technologies. Through digitization, exhibitions, and public programs the curator can give new life to a traditional institution and provide the public with a variety of inspirational events that instill new life to the institution.
Dr. Georgopoulou’s talk will offer a unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities involved in rejuvenating traditional organizational structures through a combination of digital technology, managerial extroversion, and curational creativity.
It will be a great honor for us if you would be able to attend.
In order to participate please register no later than April 10.
A first-come first served policy will be followed.
You can find below the discussion agenda. The speech will be conducted in English.
