Event description
Reena Tiwari raises questions of ownership, trespassing and authenticity in the virtual re-presentation of land belonging to first nations.

About this Event

As part Curtin University's Research Rumble, a week-long showcase of innovative and impactful research at Curtin University, the JCG presents Professor Reena Tiwari who raises questions of ownership, trespassing and authenticity in the virtual re-presentation of land that belongs to the First Nations People.

A project in partnership with Curtin University and Bringing Them Home WA was directed by the views of the Stolen Generations Survivors and their families. The aim was to create a Virtual Reality model as a digital record of at-risk heritage sites that can serve as digital repository for storytelling and personal narratives documenting, times, place and individuals who are fading from current collective memory. The presentation explores the following aspects that have universal applicability in the context of First Nations People:

1. That the traditional knowledge when shared widely is not misappropriated and that meanings of the cultural elements are not lost, ignored or transformed during the process of digitisation and sharing.

2. That the land ownership aspects are managed to resolve possible issues of digital trespassing.
