Inside the DIF
We're excited to announce this year's #DIF2020 Festival will run virtually across the state from 21 August to 4 September. The #DIF2020 Festival offers something for everyone from exploring emerging tech to learning about jobs of the future or how digital inclusion can make a difference for communities. We’ve all been hard at work adapting and innovating in this new virtual world and this is a great opportunity to develop creative ways to connect, share ideas and keep learning as we create a successful fifth Digital Innovation Festival for Victoria.
EOI open for event hosts
We are now inviting returning and new event hosts to start planning how you will make the DIF this year. Maybe an online meetup, webinar or even whole virtual conference as events will be in line with restrictions put in place to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). DIF2020 Festival is open for everyone to get involved.
Interested? Join us for a fortnightly DIF2020 Festival Community Call. We will cover the proposed festival schedule, priorities and cross-promotional opportunities. It's also an opportunity for you to share your latest info or ideas on your event or a challenge the community can help with.
