About this Event

Technology: Transforming the Museum Experience

With a return to the in-person museum experience on the horizon, we’ll take a look at the relationship between technology and museums, exploring some innovative ways cultural institutions are adding to their educational and storytelling toolkits. Join us for PechaKucha-style presentations from a broad collection of practitioners who are expanding the museum experience through technology.

We are returning to our usual after work time for this meeting and will begin at 5:30 p.m. In true CMEG fashion, snacks are encouraged!

  • 5:30 Welcome and Introductions
  • 5:35-6:30 Presentations
  • 6:30-7:00 Q&A
  • 7:00-7:30 please feel free to stay on and chat! It's the Zoom equivalent of heading to the bar around the corner.
