Canterbury Regional Digital Forum

The Canterbury NDF Regional Forum is happening on Thursday 27 June at the Ashburton Museum.

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 five 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 27 June 2019 starting at 10am. We’ll have 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 before 3.30pm, 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.

Where is it?

Ashburton Museum, 329 West Street SH 1. Parking south of building.

How much does is cost?

It’s FREE! But please register so we know how much to cater for. A light lunch is provided. Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements by Thursday 20 June.

Where can I register?

Email Airi Hashimoto to register by Thursday 20 June.
