The Bible, from Genesis to Revelation has recorded plant aromatics, spices, fragrances and herbs used as medicine, incense, beauty, skincare & for culinary purposes. These oils and plants have played an integral role for thousands of years in the Hebraic culture and all through early Christianity.

Program Curation

  • A co-creation workshop was held on 30 July to help create the program with ongoing discussions.
  • This was an open innovation for you to host a session or a whole day. Those who registered as a potential speaker, panelist or MC, were contacted by the Session Hosts to provide further information to see how they may be a part of their session.
  • Curation of the program is co-created via the festival management platform, so all hosts are aware of topics and speakers to avoid doubling up and ensure that the series is as representative of the vibrant local ecosystem as possible.

The Department, as the principal organiser and sponsor of the Digital Innovation Festival reserves the right for final approval of sessions to ensure that the event meets the festival core values and goals, in particular in regard to gender equity.
