The UCT Centre for Curating the Archive (CCA) has successfully digitized the artefacts contained in three cultural heritage archives and has stored them on local hard drives. Thus, the information is inaccessible to scholars, artists, researchers and community members outside of the CCA. Not only are the artefacts inaccessible, but they also lack information such as rich description fields.
Solving these problems will create awareness of minority groups in Cape Town and encourage public contribution, making the collections richer in content.
- Enable public contribution
- Improve quality of archive content
- Provide simple analysis of archive
- Provide personal experience of archive
