Expressions of interest for programme topics are now open for NetHui Copyright.
Cory Doctorow will join a special topic-specific NetHui focused on copyright on Monday 12 March at Te Papa in Wellington. Doctorow is an international blogger, author and activist, who we are thrilled to have join this special topic-specific NetHui to provoke dialogue on copyright and what he describes as 'the tricky balance between creativity, culture, and the relationship between audiences and creators'.
To build a NetHui programme, the public are invited to submit ideas for the things they’d like to talk about. People with similar topics are then linked up and asked to prepare a conversation during a NetHui Breakout Session. The ideas raised by the community also inform the creation of panel discussion topics, and the invitation of panelists and keynote speakers, both of whom lead bigger discussions in NetHui plenaries. The programme development process starts months before a NetHui, to engage widely with the community and allow groups time to flesh out their topics and prepare.
When: Monday 12 March
Where: Te Papa, Wellington
