About Annelisa Stephan

I work on digital-engagement projects at the Getty in L.A. I manage our blog, The Iris, social media, and video. In 2013 I spearheaded the Getty Voices project, which was kindof like @sweden, except with people who work at a museum and have never tweeted before. I also spend a lot of time creating spaces, virtual and real, where people in our large organization can get to know each other and share.
