Lynda Kelly, Art of Change: Innovating in Our National Collecting Institutions, Museums and the Digital, 15 July 2016

As part of Innovation Month 2016, the Department of Communications and the Arts, Canberra, is hosting (and live streaming) a seminar next Thursday 21 July, from 10:30-11:30.

What is this all about? In their words:

The first forum features speakers from the National Library of Australia (Cathy Pilgrim), the Australian National Maritime Museum (yours truly!) and the National Museum of Australia (Robert Bunzli) about their vision for the future of museums and innovation.

My talk will focus on digital visitors, digital teachers and digital students, highlighting two of our innovative and (relatively) new museum programs:
