National Digital Forum 2011

National Digital Forum 2011 are happy to open the call for presenters for the National Digital Forum 2011 conference (Te Papa, Wellington, 29-30 November). Submissions are due by 20 June 2011.

They welcome proposals on a range of topics including:

– connecting our online culture and heritage – through partnerships and through technology

– measuring success and failure – how do we know when we’re doing the right thing well?

– getting New Zealand’s culture and heritage out into the world – innovative projects, community engagement, education, re-use by consumers and creators

– sharing stories of inspirational and creative projects

– the challenges and opportunities facing our sector. 

They also welcome proposals that do not relate to these topics, but which you think will resonate with conference attendees. If you would like to discuss your idea before submitting your proposal, contact Courtney and Brenda mailto:conference@ndf.org.nz

More information about the Call for Papers and an online submission form are available on the NDF website. http://ndf.natlib.govt.nz/about/2011-conference.htm.
