Tomorrow is the final iHeritage seminar hosted by the African Commons Project and will look at sustainability issues for heritage projects going online. We’ll look at examples of how other organisations are funding such initiatives, what kinds of partnerships make sense and what value propositions mean in the online world.

Sue Hadcroft from Africa Media Online is flying up from Maritzburg to present her company’s Memat software and discuss some of the sustainability plans that they are working on. This will be a great opportunity to ask questions and understand the online heritage sustainability question better.

RSVPs are still open until the end of the day.

picture-4Remember to RSVP soonest for the iHeritage seminar on Tuesday. We’re inviting educators, creators, archivists and curators to join us for tea and coffee, 10am – 1pm at our Rosebank, Johannesburg offices to discuss technology choices available for sharing heritage online. We’re not only going to be looking at software specifically created for museums, but also at easy-to-maintain online tools like Flickr that enable anyone to easily publish their materials while having the tech taken care of by third parties.
