Digital festival underway
Australia’s only Digital Innovation Festival is underway across the Wimmera, with events at Kaniva, Horsham, Warracknabeal, Nhill and Rupanyup.
The festival started on Friday and will continue until September 7.
The Digital Innovation Festival is funded under the State Government’s $45-million Connecting Regional Communities Program and has support from Victorian Regional Partnerships, including a Wimmera Southern Mallee partnership.
The festival aims to bring stakeholders together to improve and accelerate technology adoption and innovation, including enhancing digital skills through practical workshops, conferences and seminars.
The DIF also aims to stimulate Victoria’s culture of technology innovation and entrepreneurship and nurture the state’s regional digital economy.
Workshops have already been at Kaniva and events continue with digital technology tours at Grains Innovation Park in Horsham today and Tuesday.
An ‘Embracing online: Short term and holiday rental opportunities workshop’ will be at Warracknabeal Town Hall on Monday, and ‘Agtech on my Farm’ full-day workshops will be at Nhill’s Uniting Church Hall on Tuesday and Rupanyup Community Centre on Wednesday.
There will also be a livestreaming ‘virtual’ tour of Horsham’s Maydale Reserve presented by Horsham Agricultural Society on Wednesday next week.
An Innovation Horsham workshop will be at Federation University on September 7.
