Indigenous culture is often associated with traditional practices and the past. Yet this one-day conference + workshops event reveals that emerging techologies are being used to inform -- and even transform -- the practice of indigenous art and design in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Join us as we explore issues such as integrating the innovative and the traditional in creative practice; engaging communities with new technologies; and the future opportunities offered by technological developments.
