EUscreenXL announces registration for its Content in Motion: Curating Europe's Audiovisual Heritage conference
Date: 3 and 4 December 2015
Location: National Audiovisual Institute, Warsaw, Poland
EUscreenXL invites you to Warsaw to discuss the online presence of Europe's audiovisual collections. The conference takes place at the National Audiovisual Institute on 3 and 4 December 2015. Registration for the event is free of charge and places will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
The EUscreen network functions as an expert hub where archival organisations from different cultural and professional backgrounds can experiment with the many possibilities of online publishing. During this year’s conference, we will discuss the benefits and challenges memory institutions face when making available their online AV collections. We will also highlight experiments and projects from various collection holders, discuss topics such as online engagement and draw into focus the topic of curating content - from the user perspective and from the perspective of collection holders.
The aim of the conference is to identify shared goals, enabling efficient and long-lasting partnerships within the audiovisual sector and between archives and users.
The discussions also serve to improve the online presence of our audiovisual collections, detail policy making processes and identify the most efficient dissemination channels and tools for reaching audiences across Europe and the web.
