Event description

Description

Museum digital experiences in a polarised world

This year's conference brings together an eclectic and provocative group of speakers who will share practical lessons from their own experience and pose challenges to existing practice across the sector. You will come away from this year’s event both inspired and challenged, with a list of ideas to try in your own organisation.

You'll learn how museums are using technologies like 3D printing to reach school groups and empower visually impaired visitors. You'll be inspired by the innovative twists on existing technologies and agile experiments that organisations like Brighton's Royal Pavilion & Museums, the National Maritime Museum and National Museums Scotland have tried. You'll find out what happened when historic buildings experimented with chat bots, and hear about the latest in sound scenography. You'll be provoked by discussions of fake news and the role of museums in a post-truth world. Finally, you'll have a chance to reflect on digital literacy and organisational change.

Find out more about the conference programme on the MCG website.
