Cooper Hewitt’s Interaction Lab launched Activating Smithsonian Open Access (ASOA) to create new digital experiences with the Smithsonian’s Open Access dataset. Thanks to Verizon 5G Labs, we awarded seven teams with $10,000 to prototype their ideas alongside structured support from Smithsonian, Verizon and external experts.

This panel will include ASOA leaders, stakeholders, evaluators, and participants to share a comprehensive picture of what we learned and how it will affect future work.
