Know any upcoming museum leaders? IMPACTS wants to help museum-and-innovation-loving students attend MuseumNext’s 2014 conference in NewcastleGateshead, UK by offering sponsorships to ten attendees…and applying is simple!
I almost never utilize Know Your Own Bone as an announcement board, but this opportunity is near and dear to my heart. An important part of “future-proofing” organizations is investing in the people who will someday be leaders.
Now in its sixth year, MuseumNext is a “must attend” event for anyone interested in museum innovation. The 2014 conference will take place June 18-20 in NewcastleGateshead, UK and will offer more than 40 presentations, workshops and sessions. MuseumNext attracts delegates from across the globe and offers a unique chance to network with those shaping the future of museums.
IMPACTS is offering ten students the opportunity to attend the conference with a bursary which will cover conference attendance and two nights accommodation in NewcastleGateshead.
Applying is outrageously simple: To apply for an IMPACTS bursary, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, university, and relevant coursework by May 18th 2014. MuseumNext will then select 10 students at random to receive this support.
As many of my readers know by now, I am thrilled to be a keynote speaker at MuseumNext’s 2014 conference. I’ll be digging deeper into one of my favorite topics: The relationship between digital and physical “touch” and the important role that it plays.
Please pass this information along to any ambitious up-and-comers who may be interested in the possibility of attending the event! So many amazing people supported me when I was a student, and I am grateful and delighted that IMPACTS will be paying it forward in this way. Please help spread the word!
