ARCHIVES AT RISK.....
"saving our worldwide heritage"
Organised by KES international and supported by FOCAL international, Save Your Archive programme of FIAT/IFTA, RTÉ Archives, Digital Repository Ireland/Royal Irish Academy and Coordinating Council for Audiovisual Archive Associations.
1st - 3rd June 2016, Royal Irish Academy, Dublin, Ireland
most important issue facing the audiovisual archive world today: Saving the
endangered Audiovisual Archive heritage of the world before it is too late!
local and world partner associations who share this common goal. We will bring
together, world audiovisual leaders, associations, heritage bodies, policy and
decision makers, industry experts, funders and supporters and anyone who can
help to raise awareness, exchange ideas knowhow and identify solutions.
Much of the world’s 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.
Worldwide audiovisual archives are under threat, whether from climatic issues, storage conditions, war & 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 2016 conference, themed 'Archives at Risk.'
