Otago Southland are the Coolest

LIANZA Otago Southland are delighted to announce our speaker, Subhashish Panigrahi (@subhapa), from the  Centre for Internet and Society’s Access To Knowledge programme,  will be tuning in via the interwebs from India to share his vision of Guerilla GLAM, describe case studies of these initiatives in India, as well as touching on the creation of documentaries, learning resources and promotional material from acquired content.

Subha believes “this presentation will be useful for those who can mobilize a small team of volunteers equipped with digital camera, access to local cultural institutions and some level of expertise of curating data.”
