*************************************************************************************************************************************************************
ARCHIVING TOMORROW 2016 - Archives at Risk (#AARCon) 1st - 3rd June 2016, Royal Irish Academy, Dublin, Ireland.
*************************************************************************************************************************************************************

We are proud to present 'Archives at Risk' - organised by KES International.
Supported by the Coordinating Council for Audiovisual Archive Associations
(CCAAA) in conjunction with FOCAL International, Save you Archive Programme of FIAT/IFTA, RTÉ Archives and the Digital Repository of Ireland / Royal Irish Academy.

Much of the worlds’ audiovisual archives remain on decaying carriers and require urgent intervention if they are to survive into the current millennium. Experts maintain there is about 10-15 years remaining to achieve this. The risks are considerable.

Many worldwide audiovisual archives are under threat, perhaps from climatic issues, storage conditions, war and conflict, neglect and often simply lack of know-how, resources and critically, lack of funding. Success stories as well as challenges will be debated and discussed at the Dublin Archiving Tomorrow - Archives at Risk Conference 2016.

We will bring together archive leaders and experts, industry, program leaders, policy makers, cultural heritage bodies and technology providers to look at issues, solutions, funding opportunities, models and case studies.

We look forward to seeing you in 2016!
