Our signature welcome event, Ignite MCN showcases a series of rapid-fire talks from some of the most provocative thinkers in the museum field. The talks follow the “Ignite” style, in which presenters have five minutes and 20 slides (which advance automatically every 15 seconds) to enlighten, entertain, and inspire. Joining us this year are 8 courageous and visionary speakers sharing their experiences in a wide variety of disciplines.
