The Nordic folklore archives (folklivsarkiven) gather stories from people’s lives in the Nordic countries. A major challenge that these archives face today is how to make the archives more accessible and how to renew the collecting methods so that a bigger and more geographically and socially diverse group of contributors can contribute stories.
On Sep 23, the Living Archives project invites you to a public, half-day seminar on these topics.
The Living Memories (Levande Minnen) project is a collaboration between three Nordic folklore archives in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark, in collaboration with the game company Ozma in Malmö, researchers from the Living Archives project at Malmö Universit,y and the Institution of Cultural Sciences at Lund University.
The aim is to develop a new method and a creative tool that can be used to collect memories and stories from the public as well as disseminate the archive material using social media. Inspiration is taken from scrapbooking, remixing, and so-called gamification.
The seminar is open to the public.
