Indigitization Futures Forum

You’ve digitized vital community knowledge, but now do you wonder what’s next in both managing and providing culturally appropriate access going forward? The Indigitization Futures Forum brings together past participants with others concerned with the management of Indigenous Knowledge in communities. Through panel presentations and dialogues, the Forum seeks to identify what are the needs for developing culturally appropriate systems and services. A goal of this gathering is to inform how Indigitization should orient funding and services for the program going forward.

Workshops on the Mukurtu content management system, accessing legacy materials for community-based language documentation and revitalization, VHS digitization, and image digitization will also be available on a first come basis.
