Susie Anderson

Manager, Digital Experiences
University of Melbourne

Susie uses digital media to uncover stories. With five years of content experience at Sydney Opera House and Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, the realms of content are her bread and butter. An Aboriginal woman from Wergaia and Wemba Wemba peoples of Western Victoria, she uses both her professional and personal practice in nonfiction and poetry to examine and repair disconnections between people, place and culture. In her work at Science Gallery Melbourne she is excited to engage with young people, artistic, science and research communities to create content in that liminal space of ‘the in between’.

Digital Collections as Urban Placemakers

The University of Melbourne’s Cultural Commons strategy seeks to unlock the breadth of the University’s Cultural Commons in order to reach new and global audiences and inspire scholarship. We will share findings from a global benchmarking study and our steps towards an institutional reimagining of digitisation as a key enabler for engagement and scholarship as well as creating unique placemaking possibilities. As we embed collection items in physical space through projects such as The Digital Bricks, we give visibility to heritage, provide access for community members, and highlight Indigenous knowledge and practice.
