Canterbury Regional Digital Forum

The Canterbury NDF Regional Forum is happening on Thursday 7 June at Te Hāpua: Halswell Centre.

This is a great opportunity to meet colleagues in the GLAM, IT and Cultural Heritage sectors, share your ideas, ask questions about the digital work of museums, libraries, archives and galleries, and to find people trying to solve the same problems as you.

What is it?

Most of the day will be in ‘unconference’ style, where we plan out sessions on the day. Bring your questions, suggestions, ideas for discussion topics and an open mind. We plan to start the afternoon with some very short presentations, so if you would like a two minute slot to present something, please let us know. This could be an update on a project, something interesting that you have spotted, an idea that you’d like to share. This is just an opportunity to speak briefly to everyone who is there on any subject of interest. If you have something you’d like to share, please tell us so that we can schedule it.

Who is it for?

Anyone who works in the GLAM sector (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums), anyone who produces digital media projects for this sector (web developers, app makers etc) or anyone with an interest in these areas.

When is it?

Thursday 7 June 2018 starting at 9.30 We’ll have a break for morning tea and a break for lunch, but we can be flexible about the end time: if we have all run out of steam then we may finish at lunch time, but if we are all still energized and the conversation is really buzzing, then we can keep going. We don’t want to cut things short, but we also don’t want to spin things out if everything has been said. We definitely won’t go on after 3pm.

Where is it? Hao room, Te Hāpua: Halswell Centre

How much does is cost?

It’s FREE! But please register so we know how much tea and coffee to organize. Morning tea is provided, but please arrange your own lunch. There is a café at Te Hāpua and a supermarket nearby
