Project description

Explore and critique the possibilities that new digital technologies convey for the safeguarding of indigenous dances and intangible cultural heritage practices. Blockchain, motion-capture, and other digitisation tools are to be examined within the margins wherein they are embedded: intellectual property, interculturalism and accessibility issues. The interdisciplinary methodology aims to deliver theoretical and critical frameworks for future development of reliable decentralised applications.
