Public Talk by Dr Ray Edmondson: Don't Throw Away That Home Movie!
20 April 2015
Central Public Library.
100 Victoria Street, #B1-01, S188064.

By being at the right place at the right time, home movies bring the past alive in a way that no professional film can. But how do we organise, preserve and choose from the hours of materials we so easily generate today on our digital devices? This talk separates myth from reality, and discusses how to take a conscious approach to caring for our living history.

Public Talk by Linda Tadic: Our Digital Lifestyle: Choices That Affect the Environment
21 April 2015
library@orchard
#03-12 & #04-11, Orchard Gateway, S238858.

Our daily lives utilise digital technology: phones, computers, tablets, cameras, televisions, networks, and digital storage. These technologies that we take for granted contribute to polluting the environment through direct emissions, using dirty power, and becoming e-waste in landfills. This talk will discuss how our digital choices impact the local and global environment, and how individuals and organisations can mitigate that impact.
