Rebranded as the Museums+Tech conference, this year’s Museum Computer Group conference will be better than ever with two inspirational keynotes, 10 informative presentations and 7 provocative lightning talks, plus plenty of opportunities to network and share your own ideas and challenges with colleagues working in a similar space across the sector.
Taking place on 19 October at the Wellcome Collection in London, this conference will feature an opening keynote from designer Sebastian Deterding on designing for curiosity, and a closing keynote from Shelley Bernstein, now Chief Experience Officer at the Barnes Foundation, on steering the strategic direction of an organisation when the train is already powering down the tracks. This is a rare opportunity to hear both of these speakers in London.
The conference’s main sessions will focus on digital storytelling, working in a digital world and working with collections, and will cover subjects from service design to crowdsourcing. Our provocative lightning talks session stretches from geolocation to photogrammetry: whatever your interest in cultural heritage and technology, you’re sure to be challenged, inspired and come away with new insights you can apply to your work.
MCG conferences are renowned for their friendly welcome, so naturally the event will finish the day with a chance to debrief over drinks and nibbles in a magical location, details of which are to be shared soon.
