Keynote: Pia Waugh sponsored by Auckland War Memorial Museum
Pia will take us through an exploration of paradigm shifts, considerations for the future, and the importance of grasping the opportunity before we accidentally reinvent the past. She will share her thoughts and experience on government as a platform, and how we can enable people and society through being a node in the network - to be an enabler rather than a controller.

Access and the Digital Surrogate: Openness as a philosophy
I'll discuss my research about institutional approaches to access and openness (both on-site and online), whether it’s understandable to users, how it can be more effective and impactful, and how intellectual property rights can make the process more difficult for everyone involved (but it doesn’t have to…!).

Keynote: Harkanwal Singh, sponsored by the NDF Board
Failing at change - data in stories
Attempting something new and proving it works does not necessarily change the underlying culture within an organisation, or a profession. The something new in this case is telling stories with data. 
The context for data stories is the introduction of data journalism into different New Zealand newsrooms. A cultural shift does not follow a technical one. My talk is focused on the long road to change in understanding the challenges of introducing something new and accepting short-term failure as a strategy.
