Kathryn Keane

Kathryn Keane is Vice President of Public Experiences for the National Geographic Society. She is the Executive Director of the National Geographic Museum and its popular NG Live programming and events. She also founded National Geographic’s traveling exhibitions division, which produces a variety of experiences for museums and other venues in the U.S. and around the world. Kathryn manages a creative team of designers, curators, and producers who develop unique and award-winning exhibitions and live events. These have become an important platform for National Geographic storytelling, audience engagement, and educational outreach. Egypt has been the subject of many of these projects. National Geographic's blockbuster exhibitions on the treasures of King Tut traveled to more than a dozen cities in the U.S. and Europe between 2005 and 2012. The museum' s most recent exhibition, Queens of Egypt, features more than 350 artifacts that tell the story of ancient Egypt through the eyes of its most iconic female rulers.
