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. We recognize that this continues to be a challenging time for many and that attending MCN 2021 may be difficult. To that end, we are offering the lowest registration rate feasible, which includes an annual membership with access to MCN content and a network of active museum professionals working in digital and tech all year long.
  • 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 is actively seeking sponsors to support our efforts 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.
