event Details

We have partnered with Auckland Museum, AUT, Auckland Libraries and MOTAT to present,#Future Slam: Harnessing technology to amplify Arts & Culture.

Explore how technology is being amplified in more meaningful and personal ways that not only inspire but create a forum for further discussion, partnerships and debate.

A changing digital landscape means our institutions have to quickly adapt and use technology in unique ways to remain relevant and engage audiences. Join some of Auckland’s arts and cultural leaders, alongside international guest speakers for lightning talks and a keynote address from Seb Chan, chief experience officer of the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, followed by a panel discussion. 

This collaborative event is part of Techweek 2019 and aims to showcase the ways in which public institutions use new technologies to continue providing a service for the public. Through sharing inspiring innovation, stories and exploring opportunities, see how technology can be meaningful and personal in ways that amplify the impact of arts, culture and technology.
