Digital Futures

Digital Futures at SLQ Each year State Library of Queensland presents a theme of interest to the Queensland community. Throughout 2017, we invite you to join us in exploring Digital Futures.

Technology has given us new tools through which to question, understand, imagine, re-imagine and improve the world in which we live. Not only is technology substantially changing our economy but also our leisure activities, our political processes, and how we communicate with each other. Digital literacy has opened up new frontiers for collaboration, connection, and sharing.  We are witnessing a change in the nature of work, people are living longer and healthier lives, and new kinds of activism and internationalism are emerging.

As we venture deeper into the digital age and amass huge amounts of data, the implications to our freedoms, rights, privacy, security and responsibilities and how we respect, protect and connect with each other must be considered. Who will own the digital future? What values will we strive to maintain?

Throughout 2017 SLQ will engage Queenslanders in exploring the digital landscape including adaptive technologies, education, drones, new business models, social media, mobile technology, and medical research.

Digital Futures is about deepening understanding of digital citizenship at a local, regional, national and global scale. Journey through what and how Queenslanders once imagined the future to be. Play, learn, make and explore images, locative games, talks, films, events and latest technologies.

We invite you to be part of this conversation around futurism, digital participation and our digital place.

Join us throughout 2017 as we explore the theme of Digital Futures through interactive exhibition programs, talk series', special events, learning and workshop programs, and more.
