Launched in 2018, Something Digital creates human centred experiences focused on strengthening Queensland’s digital economy.

Through its initiatives, Something Digital provides our ecosystem with opportunities to build digital capabilities, collaborate with other organisations and showcase some of the great innovations happening right here in our backyard. 

2020 Festival


Designed from the ground up as a hybrid festival, Something Digital 2020 ran both In-Person and Online.

The In-Person activations ran in multiple venues across Brisbane, enabling our digital community to meet, engage and collaborate whilst the Online experience ran via our dedicated virtual hub. 

2020 Riff Sessions


Covid-19 caused chaos around the world ... yet one of the inherent benefits of living in a digitally progressive society. We’re not socially distant - we’re digitally close and making the best of it.

The Riff Sessions were a series of 7 online sessions that examined our digital future in a post pandemic world. Where do the opportunities lie? How should we bridge the now and then? How will digital as we know it, change? 

2020 Night Nomads


The internet is a reflection of our humanity. It magnifies our ability to do good, to build communities, to create, to save lives; along with our dark side, the hate, fear, anger & frustrations of being human.

The 2020 Night Nomad Series celebrated the internet whilst exploring the relationship between our real selves and our online personas. 

2019 Emergency Digital


After a disastrous summer of bushfires, Something Digital invited Brisbane’s digital community to come together develop ideas, centralise existing resources & collaborate with others to create solutions to large-scale emergencies. The morning was focussed on the question 'How might we leverage digital innovation to better respond, manage and recover from emergency situations?'

2019 Festival


Digital is the electricity that powers our organisations and ultimately our lives. We are constantly looking for ways to do things better, bigger and faster and whether we like it or not, digital innovation is essential. In 2019 the Something Digital festival ran over 3 and included 13 separate activations involving almost 1000 participants. 

2019 Night Nomads


Something Digital’s inaugural Night Nomad series facilitated three frank and confronting conversations around the way in which digital technology is interfering with our lives. From data weaponisation to intimacy and our new robot servants, we asked tough questions found answers in all the dark places.   

2018 Festival


The inaugural event ran on November 1st 2018, bringing together participants from all corners of the digital economy including startups, small business and established organisations ... specifically in digital roles which foster thought leadership, tech and marketing.
