Archives 2.0 - Saving the Past, Anticipating the Future: Save the Date!

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.
