The National Digital Forum is a network of people working together to enhance digital interaction with culture and heritage in New Zealand. They run an amazing conference, arrange local events, and support professional development opportunities.
NZMS are dedicated supporters of the NDF and were there when it all started. Andy Fenton was one of the 31-member working group formed after the first Forum in 2002 and was elected to the inaugural National Digital Forum Board in 2006 (stepping down in 2013 as its longest serving member). Andy proudly claims he is one of a handful of people to have attended every one of the Forums from 2002-2017. GLAM sector representatives from many nations we respect are in awe of the NDF Conference, and the cross-sector community engagement it engenders. NZMS is proud at just how often we facilitate interaction between cultural heritage institutions across New Zealand and overseas. As well as participating in NDF’s skills-share initiative we love participating in the regional forums that have developed strongly over recent years.
