Connecting the Disconnected: Designing Socially Inclusive, Integrated, Archival and Recordkeeping Systems and Services

    Project: Research

    Project Description

    Archives and records are the memory banks of healthy organisations, governments, communities and
    societies. Connecting the Disconnected will address systemic failings of current systems to meet identity,
    memory and accountability needs of individuals and communities in crisis. It will pioneer a new participatory
    methodology for archival design to deliver sustainable, dynamic, and integrated archival and recordkeeping
    systems. It will be developed through the co-design of an integrated archival access network for
    reconstructing identity and a life story archive system for children currently in care. This research aims to
    transform evidence and memory management into information infrastructure that better protects and
    respects human rights.
