Tickets are now on sale for UKMW15: Bridging Gaps, Making Connections, the Museum Computer Group's 2015 UK Museums on the Web Conference. Join us at the British Museum on 26 October for this fantastic networking opportunity for museums professionals - both digital specialists and those who want to expand their understanding of digital and its impact in museums.
Our expert speakers will share their experience with connecting with new audiences, and bridging gaps between digital departments and the rest of the organisation. How is digital expertise spreading throughout all museum roles, and what value does it offer? As always, UKMW gives you an opportunity to reflect on your own work and the impact of changes in the cultural sector and digital technologies.
Our keynote is John Coburn, who'll share his insights on 'Finding space for the experiment: digital collaborations and their influence on the museum'. Find out why we asked John to be our keynote.
