Museum Tech 2022: A Digital Festival for Museums

30 June 2022, 1030-1600
Museum of London, London

Our understanding and appreciation of digital engagement has shifted in the past few years, with the Covid pandemic forcing museums to up-skill, think creatively and connect with different audiences in new ways.

Museum Tech 2022 considers some of the pressing issues to emerge since then, from digital literacy to digital poverty, as well as the environmental and ethical impact of museums’ digital outputs.

It will also shine a light on new and emerging technological innovations that are shaping the world around us, changing audiences’ expectations and bringing new possibilities to the way museums use digital in all areas of their work. 

This event takes place at the Museum of London and will include demonstrations and exhibition stands.
