The Museums Computer Group’s Museums+Tech 2018: the collaborative museum conference is shaping up to be a great event, set to inspire and challenge a wide range of attendees. The event takes places at the National Gallery in London on Friday 19 October.
We want to make sure that the messages emerging from the conference are not limited to those in attendance but shared widely in the sector, reflecting our commitment to reach and engage with new audiences.
To help us achieve this we have a small number of volunteer positions available. In return for your assistance, you will be provided with free entry to Museums+Tech 2018 and an additional £100 to cover travel and other expenses – plus it looks great on your CV!
Through these volunteer positions we hope to specifically support individuals who may otherwise be unable to attend. In particular, we greatly welcome applications from unwaged/low-waged people, those in small museums, early career professionals and students.
We are interested in hearing how you can help us reach new audiences so that more people can learn from our speakers. You can be as creative or as traditional as you like, as we hope to reach as broad an audience as possible. In the past we have had volunteers use social media and blogs, submit reports to specialist publications and share information with local colleagues. In addition, if you can contribute skills such as photography, social media, or anything else you think would be relevant on the day, please let us know in the application.
We will respond to successful applicants by 14 September.
If you have any questions about volunteering please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
For a sense of what to expect, you can read a review of Museums+Tech 2017 by one of our volunteers, Nicôle Meehan.
We hope to hear from you soon.
