#DigiScotFest14 coming soon!

We're planning a festival of ideas for getting everyone in Scotland online.

Are you active and enthusiastic about helping communities in Scotland get online and make the most of digital? Then we need you at a gathering with a difference: Scotland’s first unconference dedicated to digital participation.

It’ll be a very flexible and informal day with conversations and knowledge sharing at its heart.

When it comes to digital participation programmes across Scotland, we think the best way to find out what is going on and what we can learn from each other is to help you have valuable conversations and connect with the right people. In fact, this is so important that we’re planning a whole day around it. It’ll be a very flexible and informal day with conversations and knowledge sharing at its heart. We want it to be the event for conversations about digital participation and the agenda will be set by you, the delegates.

We’ll be hosting #DigiScotFest14 on Monday 16 June at the Informatics Forum in Edinburgh, and it’ll be free to attend. A full event page will be up soon and we’ll open for registrations in the very near future. For now, if there’s a topic that you’d like to share with a group of interested people tweet us at #DigiScotFest14 or get in touch in the usual ways.
