National Digital Forum (NDF) conference 2019 Call for presentations is open!

Kia ora koutou (greetings)

The call for presentations for the National Digital Forum Conference (18-20 November 2019, Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington, NZ) is open!

We want to hear from people working in, and with, digital on any topic affecting the culture and heritage sector. Think big picture – does your digital practice inform, influence or touch the GLAM sector? Then let us know! The timid ideas and the bold, the everyday and the unusual – the community that supports NDF is evolving and we’d like to reflect that evolution in the kinds of presentations we have at the conference.

We’d also like to make sure that the content at the conference is as fresh as possible, so don’t worry if you have an idea that’s half-formed, or a project that’s not yet completed – if it’s digital and it’s GLAM, we’d love to hear from you.

NDF is committed to honouring Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and we welcome all perspectives that explore what this means in relation to digital work in the GLAM sector and beyond.

If you need help getting your synapses sparking, take a look our 2018 programme ( and the past talks on YouTube ( Previous years have included topics such as online collection building, participatory archive development, inclusive practice, evaluation, preserving our digital lives and developing resources for learning in a digital age.

We will also be running pre-conference workshops on Monday 18 November. Please get in touch if you have an idea for those.
