All It Takes is Staff Time: A Lightning Round of Low-to-No Budget Projects

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Massive budgets, well-funded partners, robust digital departments; these are some of the factors that typically make incredible digital projects successful, but also make them out of reach for most museums to replicate or attempt. In this 45 minute session of lightning talks, a dozen people from a variety of institutions will share scrappy, low to no-budget, department of one projects with the MCN community.
