line up for past conferences http://www.ndf.org.nz/past-conferences/
What are we looking for this year?
We are keen to hear from practitioners from across the GLAM sector. If you
would like to raise a pressing issue, share an inspiring project, or
discuss opportunities and challenges in the sphere of digital cultural
heritage, we look forward to hearing from you.
We welcome proposals on any topic that's affecting the culture and heritage
sector, but if that's too broad here are a few starters:
- Cross-sector GLAM initiatives – how can we work together better? Where
are the most interesting and useful points of connection?
- Crowd sourcing and gamification – how can our users helpfully
contribute to our work? And what are some smart ideas for managing those
- Indigenous knowledge and digital preservation – how do we build and
preserve the memory of a multicultural nation?
- The evolution of libraries as community hubs – what is the future of
libraries? What does major change mean for core users and traditional
- DIY archives – how can we respond as the conventional parameters of
our sector expand? What new platforms does the collective memory inhabit?
The conference is not limited to these topics however, and we encourage you
to submit your abstract even if it falls outside of this framework.
Please feel free to email Conference Convenors, Thomasin and Matthew at
conference(a)ndf.org.nz if you would like to discuss your proposal prior to

Symposium and Workshop Themes
Live actions and recorded events have multiple modalities in contemporary
performance and media arts practice; live in the sense of ‘being there’, as
an audience/performer in physical space*, *or,
a mediated understanding of an event and its remote unfolding. This
symposium profiles forays into the unstable binaries of proximity and
remoteness, liveness and delay, the spontaneous and the staged, bodies and
technologies, performance and reenactment, the ‘delegated’ performance and

Digital Art Live invites you to join us for the opening of the new interactive exhibition Cut and Paste by Jenna Gavin
Thursday 15 May from 5.30 to 7 pm
Auckland, Aotea Centre, Level 2
Happy Hours drinks and nibbles provided
Cut and Paste is a refreshing exhibition that mixes play, art and literature. Using the metaphor of a scrapbook, this interactive work invites the audience to select words from New Zealand poems. These words become a trigger for a digital poetry lexicon, creating a brand new poem that will appear on the screen. The underlying message of this artist’s work is that new concepts stem from existing ideas and this is the nature of creativity.
At 6 pm, discover more about the work with a short presentation by the artist Jenna Gavin and the curator Nolwenn Lacire. Then in celebration of the Auckland Writers Festival, New Zealand poets Siobhan Harvey and Maris O'Rourke will read a selection of their poems.
The exhibition will then be accessible until Monday 14 July 2014
Monday to Friday 7.30am to 6pm*
*Digital Art Live will remain open late and during weekends if there is a show in the Aotea Centre.
