Museums Showoff: Boston!

Alright, boys and girls! We’ve been threatening it for awhile, and now the time has finally come. We’re upping the ante again for Drinking About Museums: Boston, and trying out a whole new format; Museums Showoff! Part poetry slam, part Ignite-style presentation, 100% museumy goodness! A rapid-fire series of 9 minute talks where your colleagues and compatriots will share what fills them with pride, captures their attention, or piques their curiosity. We’ll have ten slots and keep a couple free for walk-ons. Want to share something awesome? Email Jenn or me to secure your slot. I’ll also put up a Doodle poll in the next couple of days, so you can add yourself.

WHEN: Wednesday, September 25th at 6pm

WHERE: The lovely folks at The Hong Kong Resaurant in Harvard Square (home of the infamous Scorpion Bowl. You have been warned…) have graciously offered us an upstairs space. Such elegance and convenience! Right on the Red Line!

1238 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge, MA 02138

The Hong Kong will provide us with a microphone and monitor if you have a presentation you’d like to share. If you wanna rock it old school with no visuals, feel free. We’ll have a laptop handy, so if you bring a memory stick, we’ll get your content up on screen.

Want to know more about Museums Showoff? Check out the blog by the creators in the UK for a general idea of how they have done it.

Share the news, bring your friends and your enthusiasm, and we’ll hope to see you all there at the first US edition of Museums Showoff!
