The SHARC Project: Investigating Technology Support for the Shared Curation of Local History in a Rural Community

Project: Funded ProjectResearch

Funding organisation:


The SHARC project builds on the School’s previous research on the co-design of the Wray Photo display with a rural village community. The display has been deployed for several years and has revealed the strong potential of situated displays (coupled with community generated content) for supporting Sense of Community. However, feedback from the community has highlighted the need for additional tools that provide both greater inclusivity and also enable the community to share and co-curate digital narratives relating to the village’s local history from a range of sources and perspectives. The central aim of the SHARC project is to co-design these tools with the community and, through longitudinal study of their deployment, to explore their adoption and appropriation by the community.
