Date2022
DescriptionThe 'East Riding Blockdown: Contemporary Collecting in Minecraft' project was launched in February 2022 to collect the COVID-19 pandemic experiences of youths based in the East Riding. The project utlised the popular videogame Minecraft to provide an online, multiplayer world, called the Archiverse, for participants to document and build their pandemic stories. The Archiverse featured a fully-explorable reconstruction of the Treasure House, home of the East Riding Archives. Participants could also participate offline using their own device and private Minecraft world to build and write their pandemic experiences, and also via in-person events and workshops.. The 'East Riding Blockdown: Contemporary Collecting in Minecraft' project was supported by The Audience Agency's 'Digitally Democratising Archives' project thanks to funding from the Department of Culture, Media and Sport, and the National Lottery, as part of The National Lottery Heritage Fund's 'Digital Skills for Heritage' initiative.
