Making Links Conference 2007
18 June 2007 at 4:52 pm
The 4th annual Making Links conference is one of Australia’s leading forums for workers in the Not for Profit and community sectors to showcase their work and to explore current and emerging new media and information and communications technology (ICT).
This two-day conference attracts delegates and presenters from many fields including health, environment, education, business, government, philanthropy and human services to discuss their experiences with ICT, multimedia and web technology.
The Conference, which has InfoXchange as one of its sponsors, seeks to:
Contribute actively to the strengthening of the information technology (IT) infrastructure and capacity of community organisations by bringing the sector together to access resources, training and services, to share ideas, skills and creative applications of technology, and to increase access to and familiarity with more complex and emerging technologies, including multimedia, online and interactive capabilities.
Explore the possibilities generated for communities in accessing and utilising information technology, particularly those communities whose voices have been marginalized and excluded from the mainstream.
Showcase innovative, grass roots IT initiatives in community cultural development, outreach, and e-learning. Build and develop networks amongst workers and activists interested in how IT can be used to support social justice.
WHERE: NSW Teachers Federation Conference Centre, Sydney
WHEN: 30th – 31st October 2007
