Join industry leaders over two days on 14-15 April as we explore tangible ways that social media can engage culturally diverse audiences. Special guests include folks from the Smithsonian Institution, Powerhouse Museum, Museum Victoria and the Australian Museum.
Linda Mathijssen (one of our former interns) asks: I'm going to write my thesis about crowdsourcing in museums. … [and] I was hoping you could help me out a bit.
