Registration for MCN 2021

Oct. Tuesdays–Wednesdays–Thursdays + Nov. 9–10

Our Approach to Registration

  • Since the first MCN annual conference, providing a space to support the work of our vibrant musetech community has been our top priority.
  • MCN is a nonprofit organization, and all proceeds from conference registrations go towards costs associated with hosting the event and helps fund our year-round work.
  • In addition, MCN actively seeks sponsors to support our effort to provide registration assistance to members of our community who have been financially impacted by furloughs, lay-offs, and or are otherwise not able to afford the full cost to attend. 

Standard Registration includes membership

  • Not a member yet? We got you covered! 
  • Offering a year-round space for members to connect, share ideas, tips, job postings, and much more, MCN is the only global network of professionals dedicated to tech and digital practice in museums. 
  • We’re so sure you’ll find it invaluable that we’re including a 1-year membership to MCN with Standard Registration. Together, let’s continue to advance the thinking around emerging technologies in museums.

BIPOC Speakers Fund 

  • As a professional development organization, MCN sees our role in addressing this problem as providing resources and eliminating barriers for BIPOC people to engage in our spaces. 
  • The BIPOC Speakers Fund is one resource out of many more that are needed to encourage the engagement of BIPOC people in our conference. We invite you to donate toward a special fund that will be equally distributed among self-identified, self-nominated BIPOC conference speakers. 
  • Your contribution will help support the voices of BIPOC colleagues within the cultural sector. It is one step in a much larger movement to rectify the injustices that are inherent within museums and outside. Please consider making a donation at check-out. Thank you.
