Abstract: We recently introduced our project Maintenance Culture: Sustaining Digital Creative Works. Throughout this project we’ll be working on building communities in six areas: Baltimore, Houston, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Seattle, and the Midwest (city TBD). If you’re not near any of these, don’t worry, all of our resources will also be online, and we’ll be developing a skillshare hosting toolkit that you could use to host one in your area. The blog post details what's next for building communities.

Myriad Magpie Blog: What’s a Charrette? (Blog Post)
Title: Myriad Magpie Blog: What’s a Charrette?
Author: Annie Peterson
Abstract: Collaboration is a huge part of the Maintenance Culture project ethos, and our first big collaborative gathering is coming up on August 1 - 2. Myriad is gathering 24 incredible Maintenance Culture stakeholders / preservation and digital art powerhouses to start designing guidelines, workshop materials, tools, and resources to support institutions preserving born-digital, creative works. We’re calling the gathering a Charrette, which is a term we’re borrowing from other disciplines - it’s often used in urban planning. The blog post provides more details about what a Charrette is and how Myriad ran the event in August 2022.

Myriad Magpie Blog: Charrette Recap part 1 (Blog Post)
Title: Myriad Magpie Blog: Charrette Recap part 1
Author: Annie Peterson
Abstract: On August 1 - 2, 2022 Myriad convened a gathering of video artists, digital creators, designers, archivists, librarians, and museum professionals to talk about preserving complex, born-digital, creative works at a design charrette (read more about what a charrette is in another blog post). The whole group was incredibly engaged, enthusiastic, and generous with their knowledge and time. The results of this gathering will lead to guidelines for preserving complex, born-digital, creative works; workshops and skillshares across the US; and tools and resources to support institutions and creators. The blog presents some findings from conversations across creators and maintainers at the Charrette.

Myriad Magpie Blog: Making of Maintenance Culture (Blog Post)
Title: Myriad Magpie Blog: Making of Maintenance Culture
Author: Annie Peterson
Abstract: When we started Maintenance Culture we wanted a quickly recognizable visual identity for the project - something that communicates qualities of the work, catches the eye, and unifies materials that we create through the project. Abby Doyle worked with us to make our Maintenance Culture branding dreams come true. Abby is the designer and owner behind ADoyle Designs. She brainstormed with us by taking from abstract concepts like sustainability, digital preservation, and creative works, and used them to develop the amazing logo, colors, and name for Maintenance Culture.

Myriad Magpie Blog: Charrette Recap part 2 (Blog Post)
Title: Myriad Magpie Blog: Charrette Recap part 2
Author: Annie Peterson
Abstract: Myriad gathered a group of creators and maintainers of born-digital, creative works to start defining guidelines and building a curriculum for sustaining access to complex digital creative works. We called the gathering a Charrette, which you can read more about in an earlier blog post, and you can read Part 1 of the recap on our blog too. Many people we gathered at the Charrette had never met before, and never collaborated before! We brought together 20 people, with 20 individual perspectives, experiences, and relationships with born-digital, creative works. To build some cohesion across the group, set a base for decision-making, and guide our work throughout the Charrette, we facilitated an exercise to identify shared values.
