Literacy in the locale: content creation in Indonesia

Emma Baulch, Jerry WATKINS

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

This chapter discusses experiences from the Finding a Voice project with respect to participatory content creation initiatives in Indonesia. It shows how the training program implemented in Phase 1 of the project (see chapter 2) was adapted by our partners and applied to three telecentres across Indonesia. It concludes with points of learning derived from how these adaptations were applied and received. These points are organised according to two principles, which emerged from research by fieldworkers, community participants and program trainers:
- An understanding of literacy in the locale is necessary to appreciate the cultural ramifications of content creation activities within a given community, and design programs accordingly.
- Sustainable strategies for participatory content creation activities require careful consideration of both the production and distribution of local content
