National Media Museum, Bradford, United Kingdom 25 & 26 November 2014 Later this year, the National Media Museum will be hosting a two-day conference on the strategic acquisition and management of archives by cultural institutions. This event will bring together a number of key practitioners from the cultural and academic sectors to consider the strategic issues, opportunities and challenges presented to organisations which actively acquire and curate bodies of work. These archives may consist purely of photographic or moving footage or they may be mixed in nature, often including equipment, correspondence and ephemera; they could be analogue or digital or both; they may be assembled by a company, private individual, practitioner, community-based or regional body; complete or partial; contained or continually developing. The conference will also seek to examine emergent digital technologies and their impact on archival practice, acquisition and access Please note the dates of the event. Online registration is expected to begin in June.
