Registration for MDMC 2011 is now open here

The Milwaukee Digital Media Conference is a unique hands-on collaborative conference. This year's conference is being held at the Milwaukee Art Museum.

Participants are busy working all week on creating collaborative projects about an art piece at the museum as well as interviewing staff behind-the-scenes on what it's like to work at the museum. You can follow the projects they are putting together on our project wiki at

Participants work with instructors from The Stephens Group and staff from the art museum to utilize 21st century skills in order to create relevant real-world products. The following highlights what the participant can expect at MDMC:



At this year's conference, we will go behind the scenes with museum staff to learn what it takes to bring a piece of artwork to the museum for public exhibition. The work we produce will be used as part of the Junior Docent Program at the museum. Some of the technologies that we will be focusing on this year include Diigo (a social bookmarking tool), TimeRime (a multimedia online time line), Voicethread (a collaborative sharing tool), and Wikispaces (a collaborative website and content creation tool).
