Making Links is a conference that seeks to engage interested people, organisations and groups working at the intersection of social action and IT - including community workers, educators, trainers, not-for-profit organisations, school teachers, environmental campaigners and activists.
The Conference seeks to:
- Bring the community sector together to access resources, training and services, and to share ideas, skills and creative applications of technology;
- Explore the possibilities ICTs generate for communities whose voices have been marginalized and excluded from the mainstream;
- Showcase innovative, grass roots ICT initiatives in community cultural development, outreach, and e-learning;
- Build and develop networks amongst workers and activists interested in how ICT can be used to support social justice.
