Community Broadcasting Technology Think Tank
The Community Broadcasting Think Tank is a sector initiative that will bring together technology experts from both within and outside the community broadcasting sector in order to discuss the sector’s current and potential technology plans.
This is a great opportunity to provide input into the technological future of the community broadcasting sector as well as the activities of the CBOnline project and the CBF's Online Grants Advisory Committee (OGAC).
The event is also a consultation mechanism for an independent review of CBOnline funding, including the sector project, grants and other initiatives. It is hoped that through this process strategic priorities, including project and grant funding priorities, will be identified.
The think tank is a collaboration between the:
- Community Broadcasting Foundation's (CBF's) Online Grants Advisory Committee (OGAC), who provide advice to the CBF Board on online grant funding policy, including advice relating to the conduct of the CBOnline grant programs, CBOnline Sector Project, satellite and online distribution of content and national sector research; and
- The Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA), who manage the CBOnline Sector Project and a number of other sector technology projects.
The event will be facilitated by OGAC Chair Nathaniel Garvin and CBOnline Project Manager Stephen Hahn.
The think tank aims to:
- Inform attendees of current projects with hopes of greater collaboration;
- Identify current technology issues and opportunities in the community broadcasting sector;
- Explore how these issues and opportunities could be addressed; and
- Prioritise issues and opportunities for further development.
