The annual National Digital Forum (NDF) conference is taking place in Wellington on 23-24 November at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.
We have some exciting international speakers lined up (including experience designer Nina Simon, and Daniel Incandela of Art Babble fame) but just as – if not more – importantly, we’ve got lots of interesting and passionate people from New Zealand GLAMS (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) coming along to talk 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 registration fees to help 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 find someone to act as a referee for your application (to confirm your organisation requires financial assistance). Your referee can be someone you work with, but shouldn’t be a family member.
NDF subsidy grant application form is available for download at: http://ndf.natlib.govt.nz/about/2009-conference.htm
Applications close on 28 August, so please help spread the word if you know people who may be interested, or get a wriggle on if you’re thinking of applying yourself. http://ndf.natlib.govt.nz/about/2009-conference.htm
