Chris Needham

Anime USA
Chris Needham serves as the Director of Education and the Board Chairman of Anime USA and is excited to partner with Escape Velocity in bringing anime content to this year's convention. In his work with Anime USA, he champions cultural education and traditional art forms through an appreciation and understanding of pop culture. Chris is also a librarian and archivist who professional and academic interests include art, libraries, museums, cultural heritage issues and the law and the way these things can and often do come into conflict with one another. A science fiction fan from childhood, he's eager to talk about the ways in which people document, explore, and use their cultural heritage in visions of the future, and what that can tell us about ourselves now.
