Talk given at workshop:

Connected Collections: Co-curation across the Atlantic

How do we meaningfully connect fragmented narratives across place, time, and different cultural perspectives? Using a case study from a recent collaborative museum project between the Orkney Islands (UK) and Canada this talk will constructively reflect on our process, considering the mutual gains between collaborators on both sides of the Atlantic and where there were recognised limitations. We will consider the challenges of co-curation and multivocality in practice, particularly in the context of remote working where interviews and interpretation of 3D objects was done virtually. Ultimately, we will consider what role interactive media can play in addressing ever evolving challenges in heritage communication, source community representation and the creation of new knowledge and meaning for digital museum collections.
