In this presentation, Making the Connection in the Dark, Traci Dix-Williams, Director of Operations at Enginuity in Ironbridge Gorge, explains how she and her team successfully entered Culture24's Connect10 competition, and won top sculptor Julian Wild to lead their participatory Museums at Night event.

She shares the possibilities and challenges presented by their space, staffing and resource levels, how they built on Julian's previous work to make this luminous participatory sculpture as part of their Museums at Night event, and the effects that the project had on her team.
