20th of October 1:00 – 4:00 pm Heritage Hack with Judith Ricketts
When we consider stories, oral history and connection with audiences from a heritage perspective in our public spaces, how can we adapt and consider new platforms and collaborations that allow us to extend the experience and the narrative for audiences? Since our archives often miss out on or discount authentic and a wider array of voices that played key roles in our history, offer key perspectives on the development of our society does the digital realm afford us an opportunity to think about how we can alter the accepted perspectives and start a wider discussion that stems from the point of shared intersectionality? What does this mean from the perspective of our individual practice? Does a foundational understanding in digital allow us to approach and foster new collaborations and approaches that give us the confidence to begin to test and explore more meaningfully?
