NLA Social Media & Cultural Communication conference – Sydney, Feb 28/29, 2008

Registrations have opened for the Social Media and Cultural Communication conference to be held in Sydney in February 2008. This conference is one of the outcomes of the Australian Research Council research project New Literacy, New Audiences which concludes shortly.

The conference brings together a range of great museum industry speakers from around Australia as well as Kevin von Appen from the Ontario Science Centre, Carolyn Royston from the Victoria & Albert Museum, and Mei Mah and Caroline Payson from the Copper-Hewitt National Design Museum.

It promises to be a provocative day and is aimed at the needs of those institutions small and large who are yet to start fully exploring the opportunities.

The conference is a single day event on February 29 and is preceded by a day of two masterclasses on the February 28.

Registrations range from $134-$149 and the masterclasses are $9 per person. Book through Museums & Galleries NSW.
