This project aims to investigate how media technologies can facilitate cross-cultural engagement between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.

  • Project dates: 2019–2023

There is a need to break down the barriers that limit cross-cultural engagement with heritage issues.

Mobile media environments provide ways to build this engagement through place-based incentives.

The project expects to develop a new model for practice-based research, two mobile apps, two digital archives and a toolkit to guide people on driving, cycling and walking tours to Indigenous places of significance.

This will offer valuable avenues to share knowledge on the importance of those sites, build cultural awareness and position Indigenous knowledges at the heart of place-based engagements.
