My name is Salsabilla Sakinah and I am currently a PhD student at the School of Journalism, Media and Culture (JOMEC) Cardiff University. Previously, I obtained bachelor degree in Archaeology from Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia, and Master of Museum Practice degree from Newcastle University, United Kingdom. Prior to doing the PhD, I was working as a museum consultant in Indonesia. My main job was assisting museums and heritage sites to perform their role and function better and serve the society as their audience better, in term of developing interpretive exhibition, educational programme, and collection management. 

I am particularly interested in the topic of digital heritage, digital media use in museum, interactive-participatory design in museum, museum-based community empowerment and museum activism. I am always captivated by the idea that museums as cultural institutions should play a role in society. Not only keeping collections for the sake of themselves, museums should also do their functions in preserving and promoting cultural heritage to benefit the greater community. Side by side with the recent massive use of digital technology in museum, I also believe that the existence of this kind of new media in museum should be more than just 'to attract' people’s attention. More than that, digital technology should be able to help museums achieve their mission, perform their role and function better, and bring more benefit for society. Based of those interests, for my PhD research, I specifically study how the in-gallery digital interactives can facilitate museum activism.
