The pandemic simultaneously forced and normalized remote work. With vaccines rolling out and the CDC lifting restrictions, institutions are considering how their employees will return to work, with the flexibility and efficiency of remote work leading many leaders consider a hybrid model. So how do we best balance in-office and at-home work experiences?

Elysian Koglmeier from Artwork Archive, an online art collection management system used by organizations to manage and showcase their art collections, has seen firsthand how museums and other art institutions are adjusting to their new normal.

Hear how other museums are embracing the hybrid model and developing a productive and collaborative workforce. Learn about the benefits as well as the possible barriers. We'll discuss the ways that museum teams are communicating, delegating and working together--in and out of the office.

You’ll come away from this presentation with strategies and tools to ensure that projects stay on task, teammates have access to information, and programming and exhibitions continue--whether onsite or virtual--just like the team.

About our speakers  

Elysian McNiff Koglmeier is Head of Growth for Artwork Archive, an online art inventory management system for artists, collectors and organizations. She leads marketing efforts, partnerships and writes content for the company's blog—  

Growing up with a father as an art therapist and a mother who dedicated her career to art education, Elysian has always been passionate about the creative process and the importance of empowering artists and cultural institutions. She has pursued this passion both in the public and private sector. She started her career in museums (Middlebury College Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston), ran New England Foundation for the Arts' public art program, served as curator for Brown University and RISD, and contributed to publications such as Art New England, Public Art Review and Art Business News. A move out west brought her to Craftsy (now Bluprint) in Denver where she produced online art classes and managed partnerships for a startup that created online educational opportunities for enthusiastic makers. 

She received her BA in History from Middlebury College and her MA in Public Humanities from Brown University.
