Abstract:
This paper explores how the interaction between community members, researchers and cultural institutions can be leveraged to produce improved results for all through the interplay of user-centred design (UCD) and participative action research informed by structuration theory. We discuss through a case study of a Women on Farms Gathering (WoFG) collection in Victoria, our vision of UCD, the potential of using ICT to facilitate e-research, and the reflexive adaptation of cultural institutions.
