Brooklyn Arts Council Cultural Repatriation Project

November 2014, we teamed up with Christopher Mulé of the Folks Archive at the Brooklyn Arts Council for a test of endurance and ability. Our goal: to configure and populate a Mukurtu 1.5 website in less than 72 hours! Not only did we accomplish this goal, but the website and build process was featured live on the Mukurtu Premiere Webinar, Season01 Episode06 to share our workflows and tools with the public.




Lifetimes of Memories

It is so exciting to see this material live in the Mukurtu world. Attached to those photos and videos are people that I am very close to and feel incredibly fortunate to work with. I also feel incredibly responsible to do what I can to put their material, and knowledge, back into their hands within the right context.
