Maxime Laprade
As a digital engagement consultant, I help cultural institutions developing engaging digital projects. From building an online presence to creating digital solutions for visitors to experience on-site, from defining the strategy to create digital content, I guide and support the team every step of the way.
After studying art history and curation, I worked in digital agencies developing digital projects for cultural institutions. I now lead projects independently.
