  • I will explore how to redefine, present and connect the archive to the realm of the everyday experience from a bottom-up and grassroots perspective connected to the larger theoretical perspective we have already developed.

    I am concerned with durable ways of dealing with the archive, and as such, will explore how to bring new purpose to Beeld en Geluid (BenG) through the creation of self-propagating and maintaining archive ecologies; connecting the archive to different special interest groups and existing social constructs, i.e. old people in an old person home, lending the interactions resilience, visibility and longevity.
    The goal will to develop the domain of archive ecologies, possible approaches towards their successful creation and examples of potential archive collaborations/extensions into daily life (3) that illustrate the kind of online + offline collaborations to create a new archive.
  • Smallbean, Citizen Archivist Project - Kwala, Tanzinia
    This project tackles education and community archiving all at once. Solar-powered A/V labs are setup using donated and refurbished equipment. These labs are then used to educate citizens in computer and critical technology skills in a continual community archival project. Citizens learn skills for future jobs and for the economic development of their community while documenting the life and stories within their communities, on one hand preserving their heritage while taking steps towards the future.
  • Southwark Circle is a membership organisation whose members stay sorted, connected and lead the lives they want to lead. It does this by introducing members to each other and local, reliable Neighbourhood Helpers. We are proud to receive support from Southwark Council to serve the people of Southwark.

    Southwark Circle was co-designed with people over 50 years old as well as their families and frontline workers, and was developed by Participle Ltd, and its partners at Southwark Council, Sky and the Department for Work and Pensions.
    Southwark Circle is a social enterprise registered in the UK as a Community Interest Company (CIC)

    MIXED FUNCTIONS
  • Ecosystem of functions
    Mixed functions
  • “The care of the records of contemporary civilization is a task so vast that neither the personnel nor the funds of our institutions of research can shoulder the burden. Many records will be preserved by amateurs or they will not be preserved at all…let there be included among our objectives not only a bathroom in every home and a car in every garage but a scholar in every schoolhouse and a man of letters in every town. Towards this end technology offers new devices and points the way.” (Robert C. Binkley, Spring 1935)

  • Transcript

    • 1. Archive Ecologies
    • 2. Why? • Gap between potential and use of the archive – One time visits (museum experience) – Hard to find/navigate web interfaces • How could these interactions be extended towards the visibility and use of the archive?
    • 3. What? Archive Ecologies • Engage the community in realm of everyday life – Communities, special interest groups • Take a network, system approach – Internet – Institutions, companies, individuals – Many smaller projects linked under one network – Networked localities/multi-local
    • 4. Approach
    • 5. Two pronged approach 1. Beeld en Geluid – Increase accessibility – Usage, interpretation, content gen. in context of daily life 2. Address social issue – Self sustaining – Community oriented
    • 6. Approach • Collaborative – User led/participatory – Multi-disciplinary – Crowdsourcing • Iterative – Self propagating – Spinoffs • End goal focused • Scalable
    • 7. Example Projects
    • 8. Smallbean Archive Project Two pronged: - ICT Education - Community Archiving
    • 9. Southwark Circle
    • 10. Members 50+ Neighborhood Helpers Volunteers Paid Tradespeople Professionals i.e. Change a light bulb… Meetups… On recommendation… Network of partners: - Business - Public - Third sector
    • 11. Insights - New PSS - Focus on communities - various roles/membership/participation - Tailor solutions - Couple goals  empowerment - i.e. ICT education w/ community archiving - i.e. Social network w/ everyday issues for 50+ group
    • 12. 3 Concepts
    • 13. 1,2,3 - 1 Place-function ecologies - Slow rituals, from 1st ideas phase - 2, 3 Community education & the Archive - Youth media education & archive remixing - Silver surfers as citizen archivists: ICT literacy in 55+ (e-inclusion) & content based referencing creation
    • 14. 1
    • 15. Libraries “The Museum Experience” cafe shop exhibitions Café-bookshops bookshop cafe exhibition cafe Cafe-exhibition cafe library + ARCHIVE Place-function Ecologies 1
    • 16. Youth media education + archive remix • Target education institutions (local ) & OCW (web) • Educate: – Documentary/film techniques (fun) – Critical thinking about media • Remix a certain % of BenG material: – E.g., free recording studio in Rotterdam. Animal sounds from their archive must be used. – Clip providence 2
    • 17. 2
    • 18. Silver Surfers as Citizen Archivists • Tackle issues of the growing aging population (i.e. e-inclusion) and content based referencing 3
    • 19. 55+ Citizen Archivsts
    • 20. “The care of the records of contemporary civilization is a task so vast that…many records will be preserved by amateurs or they will not be preserved at all…let there be included among our objectives not only…a car in every garage but a scholar in every schoolhouse and a man of letters in every town.

    • 21. Citizen Science
    • 22. Citizen Archivists
    • 23. Citizen Archivists • Benefits for participants: – Learn ICT literacy – Engagement, local meet-ups with like-minded – $$(?) • Different types of subscription/roles – Interest based – Distributed computing, i.e. lend processing power (see SETI@home) – Fixed (minimum) commitment

    • 26. AR? • Link real-life, ecosystems in “reality” & in an accessible, online manner (multi-local, multi- stakeholder). • Focus on community/interest groups for added value – Individual contributes online – Community building offline – Multiple forms of participation/engagement • Individual level • Multi-stakeholder: companies, organizations, etc.
    • 27. AR? • Increase accessibility • Leapfrog off of existing (analogous, successful) infrastructures – Proven citizen science web infra’s – Organizational/collaboration structures • API for developers – Open up content for usage/remixing – Develop mobile forms of citizen archiving
