The Digital Campus at Michaelhouse


I am thrilled to announce that in April this year we will be hosting The Digital Campus at Michaelhouse in the beautiful KwaZulu-Natal Midlands.

For some years now we have been trying to conceive of a festival of digital training based in a beautiful but contained space. When we began to interact with Michaelhouse school in terms of digitising their archive, I thought this is the ideal place. When we ran the Heritage Digital Campus last year at University of Fort Hare, I was amazed at how many people came from around the Eastern Cape and all over the country to what is quite a remote spot. You are clearly prepared to travel for quality training. And Michaelhouse is that much more accessible!

The feedback we had from that event was, “we want more over a longer period of time.”

So we have listened to that and from April 2 to April 13 we will be running a supercharged Heritage Digital Campus in parallel with our Shutha Digital Campus and a documentary festival.

More details will follow shortly but I wanted to give you the “heads up” to book the first two weeks of April and be ready to travel to the beautiful KwaZulu-Natal midlands for a festival of training in building a digital archive that will last for generations.
