  2. 2. The origins of Co-Curate • Knowledge exchange in rural Northumberland • Medical education and open educational resources • Creating educational digital platforms • Challenging digital exclusions • Thinking about circulations of knowledge: archives, heritages and identities • Identifying excluded communities • Multi-disciplinary research and practice 2
  3. 3. Co-Curate North East: creating sustainable routes for North East communities to digitally transform and co-produce open cultural resources • Funded as part of the AHRC Digital Transformations in Community Research Co-Production Programme • Trans-disciplinary project to open up 'official' museum and 'un-official' co-created community-based collections and archives through innovative collaborative approaches. Challenge conventional taxonomies • Create a rich mix of openly licenced and other data from arts and humanities, science, and medical health contexts, placing 'authoritative museums' data from professional curators alongside data from more informal contexts compiled in collaboration with communities 3
  4. 4. Co-Curate North East • Co-curate knowledge about collections and archives working with c.20 schools and community groups (both rural & urban) • Develop innovative research and learning strategies, drawing on proven methods and focusing especially on intergenerational models • Working across disciplines: International Centre for Cultural and Heritage Studies, the Digital Institute, Medical Education, and the School of Education, Communication & Language Sciences • Create engaging and self-sustaining online spaces for schools and communities; intergenerational and international collaboration • Promote the notion of ‘citizen researchers’ and participatory research 4
  5. 5. Northumbrian Exchanges • From transfer, to exchange to multiple circulations of knowledge • What does co-production mean in arts practice and research? • Developing third space models and actual spaces • History, identity, lineage, landscape 5
  6. 6. Challenges of co-production in the North East • Geographical challenges: borders, localities, communication • Multiple borders of the North East: class, history, identity • Excluded digital communities • Analogue and digital heritage • Extra-territoriality of materials, dispersed archives 6
  7. 7. The microscopics of co-production • Engaging communities, conversing with communities • Making sense and meaning through materials • Collage, collision and distribution of materials • Translating cultures 7
  8. 8. Co-curation: 3 case studies • George Stephenson High School and the coordination of identity materials • West End Young Digital and uncovering histories • West Newcastle Picture Collection, ownership and institutions 8
