Interfaces to Living Archives

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther


In Australia, Rangers, language workers, and elders are collecting stories about local knowledge. We have First Nations people working in animation, film making and software development. The next step is to create Living Archives where the stories and knowledge can be removed from the status of museum pieces and made into interactive and informative collections that can be used to education our own people, or educate all Australians, and enable the ongoing growth of this knowledge.
The first step is to be able to collect these stories in community repositories, and work is being done, with many forms of software being used by these different groups. Then next step which is the focus of this workshop will be developing the interfaces to these repositories, in a way that different collections can be linked into say maps (with public/private settings), 3D models of country, 360 deg images of country, interactive games where the player progresses through knowledge (cf Never Alone), but developed as templates so that community can directly interact with their chosen online environment.
