Abstract

Institutions of public memory are increasingly undertaking co-creative media initiatives in which community members create content with the support of institutional expertise and resources. This paper discusses one such initiative: the State Library of Queensland's 'Responses to the Apology', which used a collaborative digital storytelling methodology to co-produce seven short videos capturing individual responses to Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's 2008 'Apology to Australia's Indigenous Peoples'. In examining this program, we are interested not only in the juxtaposition of 'ordinary' responses to an 'official' event, but also in how the production and display of these stories might also demonstrate a larger mediatisation of public memory.
