CoEDL is having a visit on 18th November by Kimberly Christen Withey,  Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation at Washington State University, and designer of a digital collection system 

At 3 pm she will give a demo and discuss Mukurtu.

Mukurtu (MOOK-oo-too) is a free, mobile, and open source platform built with indigenous communities to manage and share digital cultural heritage. It is a grassroots project aiming to empower communities to manage, share, and exchange their digital heritage in culturally relevant and ethically-minded ways.  The original Mukurtu archive was built from the ground up in 2007 as a stand alone, browser-based community digital archive for the Warumungu community embedding community protocols around the viewing, circulation, and creation of cultural material and knowledge directly into the archival platform. The Mukurtu Wumpurrarni-kari Archive became the catalyst for the production of the Mukurtu CMS open source platform.

All welcome.
