National Digital Forum 2009 Conference

The 8th annual National Digital Forum conference will be held in Wellington on Monday 23 – Tuesday 24 November 2009 at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.

The National Digital Forum (NDF) is a coalition of museums, archives, art galleries, libraries and government departments with more than 130 member organisations committed to collectively building New Zealand’s culture and heritage online.  

This year’s conference theme Being online now: culture, creativity and community will explore opportunities for the creative and cultural sectors to cross traditional boundaries and collaborate on solutions to address issues facing communities being online now. The conference will explore how creating and accessing New Zealand digital content benefits all parts of society: business, education, cultural organisations, local communities.

The interactive format of the programme will encourage delegates to take part in open knowledge sharing, discussion and debate. The 2009 conference programme will include stimulating keynote speakers, discussion sessions, and practical workshops and demonstrations.
