The annual National Digital Forum conference is taking place in Wellington on November 23-24 at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.
It’s going to be a good conference. We have some exciting international speakers lined up including Nina Simon Experience Designer, and author of the Museum 2.0 blog and Daniel Incandela from the Indianapolis Museum of Art and Art Babble fame.
Just as important – if not more so – there will be lots of interesting and passionate people from New Zealand GLAMS (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) talking about the work they’re doing and the big issues we face as a sector.
This year the NDF is offering up to 10 grants to subsidise people who are employed by or associated with small community organisations and who would otherwise not be able to afford to attend the conference. The subsidised registration fee is $200 for the two-day conference.
This grant is only open to New Zealand residents or citizens. You need to complete the application form and return it to the conference organisers by Friday 28 August.

Please help spread the word if you know people who may be interested, or get underway if you’re thinking of applying yourself.
