IgniteSA helps the South Australian Museum with the first reverse pitch for 2018

Posted on

Ignite SA has launched the first 2018 Gigabit Challenge called "Preserve".

The South Australian Museum holds one of the largest, most important collections of Aboriginal cultural heritage on the planet.  GigCity Adelaide has also expanded its network, allowing further accessibility to a super-fast broadband network.  This presents a unique opportunity to allow people across the world to experience the past using modern, advanced technologies.

IgniteSA has partnered with the South Australian Museum and the State Government to bring you the IgniteSA Gigabit Challenge: Preserve.

Preserve challenges you to design and develop a solution that will unlock the world's most important collection of Aboriginal cultural heritage and transform it into a completely revolutionised Museum visitor experience.

Pitch your idea and you could receive $20,000 in funding to bring your idea to life. Plus, the opportunity to travel to an international conference to put your idea on a global stage!

Find out more at the Preserve Reverse Pitch event, with key speakers like Google's recent Director of Engineering Alan Nobel will give further insight into the challenge.

When: Wednesday 2 May, 2018; 10:00am - 1:30pm

Where: Pacific Cultures Gallery, South Australian Museum, North Terrace, Adelaide
