      Museums+Tech 2019: openness Friday October 18 2019 How can museums and other cultural organisations be more open in terms of their collections and processes, is openness always desirable, and what barriers might we have to overcome for truly open digital cultural heritage? Museums and other cultural organisations have long been encouraged to be more open, in multiple senses of the word. From a technology point of view, this idea often centres on sharing collections data, producing open source software and tools, and developing open standards – all of which could have far-reaching implications for user engagement, future collaborations, and long-term preservation. Don’t miss your chance to hear inspirational presentations and cutting-edge case studies, take part in discussions on the latest thinking in the digital museum world, and network with an international audience. Museums Computer Group’s events are an opportunity to learn from experts and peers, and have an excellent track record for featuring a range of emerging and eminent speakers presenting on topics that matter to you now. Come prepared to challenge speakers, ask questions and network in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We will also host an evening event open to all so you can continue the conversations started during the day.
