X-camera Speaker Series: Aynur Kadir

January 31, 2020, 1pm - Aynur Kadir: Collaborative Indigenous Media: Participatory design for Indigenous Art and Cultural Heritage

@Fresh Ground, 256 King Street East Kitchener

Heritage institutions such as Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums (GLAMs) embrace digital technology to tell intangible stories about their tangible artifacts and to make these stories accessible to the public they serve. However, the collaborative nature of this process is known in the industry to be expensive, time-consuming, and most importantly, challenging to adequately represent the narrative sensibilities of Indigenous Knowledge. How can researchers work with community stakeholders and GLAMs to facilitate the representation of Indigenous art and cultural heritage and their intangible qualities? This presentation analyses two virtual museum projects and three physical exhibitions that present large scale Indigenous multimedia artefacts (co-designed by the speaker) to assess and analyze the challenges and benefits of collaborative methodology and its future direction.
