National Film and Sound Archive 'Digital Directions' symposium
Date: 21-22 August, 2018
Location: National Film and Sound Archive, Canberra
Overview: The National Film and Sound Archive (NFSA) explores the intersection between digitised cultural collections, creators and audiences at the fourth annual Digital Directions symposium in Canberra on 21–22 August 2018.
- How are digitally literate creators, digitally available collections and users' expectations for 'always on, everywhere' access changing the future of galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAM institutions)?
- What challenges and opportunities are created when GLAM institutions embrace new technology to receive and share content?
At Digital Directions 2018: Intersections, speakers drawn from the cultural and academic sectors, creative industries and government will come together to look at these questions and consider the digital future of Australia’s GLAM institutions.
Delivered in partnership with the ABC, Australian Institute for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS), National Archives of Australia (NAA), National Library of Australia (NLA) and National Museum of Australia (NMA).
