Introduction to Mukurtu Content Management System (CMS): Providing Digital Access to Cultural Collections
Mukurtu CMS is a free content management system that allows communities to preserve, share, manage, license and curate their digital heritage and stories using their own cultural protocols, languages, and social values. In this SHN sponsored workshop, participants will be shown demonstrations and examples of all Mukurtu’s core features and tools including a dictionary and mobile application, as well as examples of Mukurtu in use in communities and institutions, emphasizing preservation strategies, cultural protocols and the use of Traditional Knowledge (TK) Labels. Participants will take part in basic planning, description, and content creation activities. This workshop will be a half-day session, and is sponsored by the Sustainable Heritage Network.
