Blend Indigenous Cultural Knowledges, with cutting-edge, interactive, and immersive technology with the Ballardong Whadjuk Culture Tech program
In this workshop we combine Indigenous Cultural Knowledges (ICK) with emerging, interactive, immersive technologies. It is a design thinking studio for designing a minimal viable product of a Cultural Hub (CH). CHs store ICK and community members have access, according to kinship lore, for individual or community entrepreneurial benefit and partnerships. The purpose of this workshop is to learn the value of technology enabled ICK for economic independence through entrepreneurship of ICK sovereignty.
