iGEA is proudly supporting The Digital Culture Public Sphere consultation which will be chaired by Senator Kate Lundy and provide a platform for discussing Australia’s first National Cultural Policy in almost two decades. This live online consultation will be held in Sydney on October 6 and members of the digital arts, digital industries and cultural institutions will be invited to share their ideas on Australia’s national cultural policy. The vision is to develop a 10 year national cultural policy that sets Australia up for the future.
A “Public Sphere” is an award winning consultation methodology to incorporate traditional and online consultation tools including social media. It was designed to increase public participation in government policy development and directions.
There are a number of ways to participate in the Digital Culture Public Sphere, with all contributions presented to the live forum on October 6 as well as consolidated into the final submission paper. To find out how you can participate, go to Kate Lundy’s website
