The National Digital Forum (NDF) is a coalition of museums, archives, art galleries, libraries and government departments with more than 150 member organisations committed to collectively building New Zealands culture and heritage online.

This years conference theme is Linking data, linking people. Throughout this conference we will be exploring the issues and opportunities surrounding:

  1. connecting our collections
  2. linking up with each other
  3. using data
  4. working with communities (e.g. iwi, family historians, etc)
  5. working with content creators and consumers

This will be an opportunity to learn from others, including leaders in the field and those starting out.

The conference will be based around a stimulating mix of international keynote speakers, lightning talks, expert led forums and demonstration sessions.
