A regional approach to collections: ‘It’s all about the baking’

What does baking have to do with digital projects? Our answer is community.
Project Ark's goal is to assess, catalogue, image and pack Southland's 14 small museum collections and share them online in a strategic way. The two year Pilot is funded by a regional heritage rate levied by our three Councils. Our team of four professionals are currently based at the Wyndham & Districts Museum, working alongside its volunteers. The Project relies heavily on community engagement; knowledge is shared over smoko and delicious home baking. Common systems, standards and a regional eHive community are the foundation tools but the soul is our communities' connection with their heritage. Our presentation will share this spirit alongside the Pilot's genesis, delivery and our long term aims.

I am a social history curator with a passion for making community collections/heritage more assessible via engaging exhibitions and online tools. I lead a regional digitisation Pilot in Southland and am always up for a conversation about ways to bring our collections to life.
