MCN Ignite

Tuesday, November 7, 2017

6:00pm - 8:00pm

Our signature welcome event, MCN Ignite showcases a series of rapid-fire talks from some of the most provocative thinkers in the museum field. The talks follow the “Ignite” format, 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 12 courageous and visionary speakers sharing their experiences in a wide variety of disciplines.
