​Arts and cultural institutions are connected to our communities and reflect our identities.

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

This event aims to showcase the ways in which public institutions use new technologies to engage audiences and foster research and collaboration. 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. 

This event was created in partnership with Auckland Live, Auckland Art Gallery, AUT, Auckland Libraries and MOTAT as part of Techweek.

*Please note, entry to this event is through Grand Foyer at the North of the Museum.
