IAML Australia is pleased to announce Mr John Willsteed will be joining us at our 2016 conference in Brisbane as a Keynote speaker. As a musician, Mr Willsteed is best known as a member of Brisbane punk band The Go-Betweens making him a popular choice to speak on the theme Local History, Local Music.
Mr Willsteed will discuss how the digital world and all its aspects have dramatically altered our ability to share cultural collections. More and more material is collected daily; digitised, tagged, codified and stored. Methods for sharing collections online have become more sophisticated, allowing access to an unprecedented quantity and variety of cultural material.
