This AHRC-funded conference and community showcase marks the climax of an
eighteen-month multidisciplinary research project entitled Pararchive: Open
Access Community Storytelling and the Digital Archive

The project seeks to build new interactive environments that explore issues
of ownership, public and institutional relationships and provide tools for
collaborative community research and creative expression using digital
heritage resources. It was motivated by recognition that communities are
encountering real barriers to organising and connecting to resources and
each other. In the field of heritage it is often difficult to access
archival materials from public cultural institutions owing to bureaucratic,
commercial and geographical barriers, something that impedes community
research and connectivity. It is often difficult to establish relationships
between communities and institutions that could and should be mutually

We have been asking how best to approach these problems and deal with issues
such as copyright,  collaborative working, impact and building an open
source digital environment to facilitate connectivity and build a set of
lasting legacies. We now want to widen our conversation by bringing together
community groups, activists and campaigners, researchers, creative
professionals, cultural institutions and policymakers interested in
developing and promoting research, education, collaborative working
practices, policy and activism around the notion of an open access digital
resource. To celebrate the launch of Pararchive and our community
partners’ research projects we invite conference contributions around the
following suggested themes:

Creativity and innovation

Co-curation models

Co-design and co-production methodologies and experiences 

Collaborative practices and community-based participatory research 

Copyright in participatory projects 

Conservation of artefacts and collections in the digital age 

Data ownership and open data 

Digital literacy 

Digital storytelling 

Digitisation of individual and community memory 

Emerging business models 

Evaluation and measurement of impact in co-produced research 

Future notions of digital archives and libraries 

Geographical linking 


Memory in the arts/digital art preservation 

Museum and media archives Partnership models between communities and
institutions Principles of digital data recording and cataloguing 

Research ethics and research data management 

(Self)-Representation, identity and privacy in digital public spaces

We are also interested in hearing about related screening materials, project
outcomes and community creative practice.

We welcome contributions from all sectors of the community.
