Interview with Tyler Wellensiek of State Library of Queensland

Today we sit down with Tyler Wellensiek of the State Library of Queensland. Tyler and I first met in Melbourne at the Puliima conference – a language and technology forum for the indigenous – thanks to a mutual acquaintance.

In this interview, Tyler goes over:

  • Some of the work he’s doing with the indigenous people of Cape York and the Torres Strait
  • His background in advertising and marketing and how that’s helped with his work
  • How the State Library of QLD deals with issues around Intellectual Property (IP)
  • How to go about raising funds for indigenous-based content
  • Involving communities
  • Advice for folks who are looking to produce cultural animations of their own, especially indigenous content creators
