Wellington just hosted the National Digital Forum, where a big topic was how to attract the maximum audience for art in the digital age.

One of the keynote speakers was Australian Keir Winesmith, Head of Digital at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, one of the largest contemporary art galleries in the world.

Keir's thing is the interface where art and digital meet. He spoke about time at the conference - the temporal time of planning exhibitions and events, and the permanent time of thousand year old artifacts.

The conference ended with an awards ceremony - the Digital Exhibition or Collection Award went to the Sarjeant Gallery in Whanganui for their Explore Their Collection portal.
