Calling all Curators! Artifacts from past MW conferences needed for Pop-up Museum

Next month, in Los Angeles, be sure to drop by the MWXX Pop-up Museum, celebrating the past two decades of the Museums and the Web conference. Located right outside the main ballroom, you won’t miss it.

Curated by this year’s conference participants (which means you), the exhibits will feature memorabilia and artifacts donated by past attendees. And that’s where, in the lead up to next month, we need your help.

Do you still have that badges from years’ past? Or a yellowing program? Or a ticket to the after-hours karaoke party? Then this is your chance to share your personal treasures with the world, for all eternity (or at least until the end of the conference).

To make a donation to the MWXX Pop-up, please follow these simple steps:

  1. Submit each object into the collection here (once for each object)
  2. Contact Hiroko Kusano by email to let her know whether you will bring the items with you or wish to ship them in advance
  3. Gather your friends and bring them to the opening of the MWXX Pop-up Museum

See you in Los Angeles!

Barry Joseph is the Associate Director for Digital Learning at the American Museum of Natural History. Really. He sometimes has a hard time believing it himself. What an exciting time to explore the intersection of digital media and museum-based learning! In fact, his desk, on the 4th floor, is right down the hall from where the MacArthur Foundation, back in 2006, first announced its new Digital Media and Learning Initiative, whose efforts were central to Barry’s previous work as the director of Global Kids’ Online Leadership Program. But enough about him. Introduce yourself @MMMooshme or at Mooshme.org.
