How can I get involved?

The DIF provides an opportunity for people to be involved in a variety of ways.

Registering your interest is your opportunity to contribute and shape this year’s festival program. We are interested in potential  event hosts, speaker, partners, sponsors or volunteers. Subscribe for DIF Updates and we'll keep you informed as the program develops.

The DIF Register is an information gathering process that will help the festival organisers connect people and foster collaboration across the ecosystem.

Event Host - You already have an event planned or you want to host an event we invite you to register to be included in the calendar.

Event co-host - You are not quite sure you want to lead an event but would like to collaborate with another organisation as partners.

Speaker - You are keen to share your experience and knowledge and present at a DIF event as a speaker, panellist or MC.

Sponsor - Your organisation is interested in sponsoring the festival or events, through either in-kind or financial support.

Venue - Your organisation has access to a venue you would like to offer to potential event hosts to run their activities. Example venues include coworking spaces, boardrooms, auditoriums and libraries in the CBD, metropolitan Melbourne or regional Victoria.

Volunteer - You are keen to be involved in the actual running of the festival or key events and are able to volunteer your time and expertise. Students are encouraged to be involved.

Audience - You just want to know what’s on the calendar and about any special offers to attend events as an audience member.

Please note that the Department views this form as an opportunity for parties within the digital innovation sector to contribute information based on their knowledge and experience. DEDJTR encourages participation, acknowledging that participation is completely voluntary. You may choose to answer all or some of the questions.
