We need your help, M&CPeeps. We have entered a contest to win a keynote slot at this year’s New England Museum Association conference in November. The contest is called 45 Minutes of Fame; if we win we’ll use our 45 minutes to talk with conference participants about seeking creative inspiration outside the museum, one of the topics we’ve been exploring as part of this project.
Everyone vying for 45 Minutes of Fame submitted a two-minute YouTube video. Whichever video gets the most LIKEs by September 28 wins the keynote slot. We are up against some stiff competition: a zombie volunteers presentation from Andover Historical Society and a here’s-how-you-start-a-museum story from the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace. Both institutions have been mobilizing their staff and constituents to vote. Since we don’t have staff and constituents, we need you to help us win. And then, of course, to come to the conference and see our awesome, interactive presentation.
Head on over to YouTube now and cast your vote!
