Australian Centre for the Moving Image
Seb Chan, Director & CEO
Seb Chan was appointed to the role of Director & CEO in 2022 following a global search for an inspirational leader who will continue to evolve Australia’s national museum of screen culture, after its 40-million-dollar renewal and transformation into a multiplatform museum.
Relocating from New York in 2015, Seb was appointed to ACMI’s newly created role of Chief Experience Officer, signalling a pioneering approach to engagement in the Australian museum sector. The role saw Seb take responsibility for the museum’s Experience & Engagement division, guiding teams across visitor experience, marketing, brand and communication design, digital products and technology, plus the museum’s collections, including digitisation and preservation of videogames and interactive art.
Playing a leading role in the award-winning experience design and technology that underpinned ACMI’s renewal, Seb was a driving force behind The Lens, a take-home home device that allows visitors to digitally collect artworks and objects. He also created and heads up ACMI’s CEO Digital Mentoring Program (2021- ongoing), working with leaders across the Australian creative industries to foster their knowledge and understanding of strategic technology.
