MWA2013: Museums and the Web ASIA 2013

FringeBacker  Monday, 9 December 2013

Museums and the Web is the largest international conference devoted to art, science, and natural and cultural heritage content online. This year Museums and the Web Asia 2013 was held December 8-12 in Hong Kong, China at the Sheraton Hong Kong Hotel and Towers. Together with Professor Leonard Steinbach from John's Hopkins University, FringeBacker was thrilled to share insights at 2 workshops with museum professionals on crowdfunding for museums --- 'The How-to's, Why-to's, If-to's, Where-to's of Crowdfunding Museum Programs and Projects in Asia’ and ‘Crowdfunding: It’s Getting Crowded in Here…. Are We Having Funds Yet?’. Crowdfunding case studies from the Louvre, the Smithsonian and other leading museums, aroused a heated discussion and energetic exchange among the attendees. We’ve had a fantastic “Week at the Museum” and we look forward to another one next year!
