What else should I know about WGG?

It’s FREE to participate and you don’t have to be registered for the conference to attend (but it would be nice)!

One of the great treats of the event, besides getting to work in a museum space that is not your own, is that we have a dinner the night before to thank you and to introduce you to the people you’ll be working with and then get your GOLD STAR.
