"The Archived is Alive," is an exciting project that bridges the gap between museum curators, cultural practitioners, and the captivating world of the boat lute. Join us on a remarkable journey as we explore the rich heritage and enduring traditions surrounding this remarkable instrument.
The project team made up of cultural practitioners, curators, and artists are embarking on a transformative expedition from Borneo to the United Kingdom. Their mission is to delve into museum collections, investigate cultural artifacts and breathe new life into the archives. By shedding light on the ongoing practices and preservation efforts of the boat lute in rural and urban communities across Borneo Island, they aim to amplify indigenous voices and reimagine the role of databases and archives.
