MCN2017: Looking Back, Thinking Forward, Taking Action
Every year MCN explores topics of relevance to museum practitioners working with, or affected by, digital media and technology. In 2017, MCN will focus on how museums can use technology to innovate and emphasize transparency, individual action, and institutional bravery. We encourage proposals with bold ideas that leverage technology to evolve museums, create institutional partnerships outside the sector, and champion a culture of transparency to inspire immediate action for a better future.
Submissions on any topic are welcome, and we especially encourage proposals that present bold ideas to leverage technologies which help museums evolve, create institutional partnerships outside the sector, and use lessons from the past to act for the future.
