Sofia Widmann is Founder and Managing Partner of MUSEUM BOOSTER, a Vienna-based research and consulting firm. In cooperation with Fraunhofer IAO, Sofia initiated the Future Museum project, a major European research network, which brings together museums, governmental organisations, suppliers and other stakeholders. It aims at helping museums identify major innovations which are relevant for the visitors’ experience.
Previously, she was responsible for marketing at PARTNER Culture+Projects, an Austrian-based museum service provider and exhibition organiser. Prior to that, she worked for the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, where she was involved in media communications for the biggest private museum of contemporary art in Eastern Europe, the PinchukArtCentre in Kyiv.
Her special focus is on new media technology and its influence on the success of museums. From 2014 to 2016, she analyzed this connection as part of her MBA studies at Modul University Vienna.
The children's program "Box of Museum Chocolates" as part of Creative Days Vienna is curated by Sofia Widmann/ MUSEUM BOOSTER.
