ATALM 2015 Workshop: Mukurtu CMS Site-Building and Community Engagement
Date: Thursday, September 10, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Join us for this pre- ATALM 2015 Workshop in Washington D.C. Mukurtu CMS is a free content management software that allows communities to preserve, share, manage, license and curate their digital heritage and stories. Mukurtu promotes a community approach to digital heritage management and preservation, integrating already established social and cultural systems with technological tools. In this workshop, participants will get hands-on experience with Mukurtu CMS. Participants will learn: 1) basic site set up 2) core features, and 3) step-by-step procedures to curate digital heritage items with Mukurtu CMS. Participants will see examples of Mukurtu in use in communities emphasizing preservation strategies, cultural protocols, and the use of traditional knowledge labels. Participants will need to bring laptops to the workshop and are encouraged to bring digital media to use in their Mukurtu play site during the workshop. This workshop is sponsored by the Sustainable Heritage Network.
