WHAT WE DO

Streaming Museum presents contemporary-themed exhibitions of international fine arts, pop culture and cross-disciplinary perspectives to a global audience through an expanding network of screens in public spaces on 7 continents, partnering cultural and commercial centers, and StreamingMuseum.org. Since 2008 Streaming Museum’s exhibitions have been viewed by millions of people in over 65 locations around the world. Streaming Museum is part of the inspiration-and-information-with-social-value economy.

WHY WE DO IT

We believe that the arts and technology channel inspiration and knowledge that make the world a better place.

WHAT DRIVES OUR PROGRAMMING

Streaming Museum’s programs are inspired by the “overview effect” which describes the transforming experience of astronauts looking at earth in space. And in parallel to this we believe that the “worldview effect” of looking at the world through the arts, people, cultures and visionary ideas, is a key element in this transforming experience. Technology has made it possible to watch the entire world. The question is … what do we see, and what needs to be attended to.

Our content centers around contemporary-themes that reflect multi-disciplinary perspectives from the arts, sciences, global economics and geopolitics, cultural diversites and commonalities, our interdependence and future.

OUR TEAM, GUEST CURATORS and SPONSORS

Our core team includes Nina Colosi, Founder and Creative Director of Streaming Museum, Curators Tanya Toft and Juliette Yuan, Videographer and Co-producer David Bates, Jr., Website Manager Dylan Fisher.
