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

    Project: Research

    Project Details

    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.
